Christmas Eve....

JESUS birth is the REASON for the SEASON!  How many of us forget that during the hustle and bustle of this "celebrated" event! We all know the Christmas Story...away in a manager,.... which led to eventually a walk to the cross,.....which led HIM to be seated in heavenly places making intercession for you and me!  GOD SO LOVED!  HE loved us enough that he SACRIFICED ALL for us!!

As some go about there merry way this season, racking up major credit card debt, so they can show there children and loved ones just how much they are loved by presenting them with many gifts or expensive items, let us remember that the MOST PRECIOUS GIFT we can give to our loved ones is OUR LOVE for THEM and our LOVE for HIM!  

I hope during this Christmas Season, we will slow our roll.... enough to REMEMBER that GOD IS LOVE!  And that Christmas should be ALL about LOVE!  Let us take time to show our loved ones they are loved....send a card, make a phone call, give a hug and kiss, or sit down and eat and laugh and just ENJOY OUR LOVED ONES company!  Let us not take any of these precious moments spent with loved ones for granted.  When your loved ones are not around, these memories during the holidays that you create...showing love, will be what is MISSED the most!!

Let us remember that LOVE really is the REASON for the SEASON....and spread the LOVE of JESUS to others, in and through us!!

BLESSINGS!! HUGS!!!

When GOD "Drops You A Line"

I just want to take a moment and share some really encouraging things I just happened to see happen amongst my peers and friends yesterday.  My heart is to empower, equip and send women into their God given purpose.  I know that without GOD I can do nothing in my own power and also need the gifts and talents of others to help me in this call.

I do think it is really cool how God can “drop us a line” to encourage us to press on into what He has purposed us to do.

Yesterday evening I received several encouraging “phone calls or messages” from women that I am honored to be doing life with.  One called me to share her professional Coaching Teaching skills with me!  This friend and I have walked through some really dark moments in life together, and NOW she is MOVING FORWARD into her calling!  BAM!  I also got another email from a friend who is ready to raise money to RELEASE her BOOK that God put in her and to encourage others by her Story.  I remember many teary phone calls with my friend who experienced much loss and hardship and trials, even when God was postioning her in a new place of blessing, and now BAM!...she is sharing her story with the world!  I then received another private message on Facebook that a friend has made a very hard decision to step down from a District Pastor position and give up her title in order to RUN AFTER her dream of writing and speaking!  WOW…now GOD is up to something with these Holy-Ghost filled women!! 

I just want to say that I am greatful for a GOD who would even “drop me a line” from three women friends in the same night and let me know,  that maybe even by some small word of encouragement or praying with these friends, that I can make an impact in others lives to help them reach their GOD-GIVEN PURPOSE!

There is a saying, how do you eat an elephant?  ONE bite at a time.  So I believe, how do we bring a REFORMATION in our church and a REVOLUTION to our community and world?....ONE WOMAN at a time…. that has the courage and strength enough to GO after their dream!!

HANG ON LADIES….GOD is up to something in your lives!!!.....”wait for it….”!!

The SIMPLICITY of the GOSPEL

I really need to find more time to write on this blog the things that are on my heart....

I am really excited to see what God is doing in the body of Christ in my sphere of influence!!

My heart and desire is to encourage others to move out and step into their God-given purpose.  This month I have seen some wonderful and powerful things happen.  I have seen a really strong woman who, even through all adversity, has stepped out to start her training in her gift via online webinars!  That is amazing.  I have seen a wonderful man of God who was trapped in the grief of the past launch his very first online teaching.  Another wonderful man of God has started doing daily Periscope's with a word from the Lord, and his wife is stepping into her God given purpose of inner healing and deliverance counseling.  A couple of ours who are Pastor,s has recently, within the last year, launched their home-missions church plant and are baptizing and seeing God move in their gatherings.  WOW....GOD is SOOO GOOD!  HE is a GOOD GOOD FATHER!!

I just want to say to all of you to NOT let the enemy DISCOURAGE you through doubt, fear, intimidation or grief from the past, in doing what you are called to do.  GOD is looking for those that will seek after the lost with a passion and compassion of HIS heart, and to NOT GIVE UP!!  To be tenacious in the pursuit and find a really strong RESOLVE deep in their soul to STAND and NOT RUN when faced with adversity from the enemy.  Persecution will come....that's expected.  

But if we do not grow weary in well doing, we will see a GREAT HARVEST of SOULS taken back for the Kingdom of GOD!

Time for you PRAYER WARRIORS to RISE....TIME TO PRAY for the Laborers of the Harvest, TIME TO PRAY for our NATION!

PRAY and DON'T STOP!!!

ARISE WARRIOR WOMEN!!

I just felt like sharing a couple of my thoughts that I have had since our first RE-LAUNCH Meeting of Women of the Vine on Saturday morning.  I have felt very encouraged to see women who are hungry after God and who want to grow in the Lord to become all that God has meant for them to be.  

This group of women will grow to become a true "COMMUNITY" of women that will create a safe place for women to come and share our struggles, heartbreaks, pains, joys, victories, and amazing stories of what GOD is doing in our lives.  I was so encourged to already see the Holy Spirit begin to move in our meeting as one of these women who had just met another, was led by the Holy Spirit to speak into the heart of another woman her struggles, but then also reached out with such love and care to come together in a one-on-one time for true innner healing in the future.   This was done ONLY through the work of the Holy Spirit among us.

Then conversations turned intimate into what we women sometimes struggle with, but WOW, what a wonderful thing to see women trusting other women with their most intimate details of their lives.  NOW that's a miracle!

I am really looking forward to what this group will grow into.  I know that so many leaders do not have a TRUE SAFE PLACE to come to share confidential issues, and know that this will be kept in confidence, and that they will be treated with such care and love that will bring healing to their "wounded souls".  

THIS....THIS is true CHRIST-LIKE COMMUNITY!!

We are also looking forward to equipping women in the word of God, being empowered through the anointing of the Holy Ghost and moving out as WARRIOR WOMEN to do what God has purposed us to do!!

ARISE WARRIOR WOMEN!!!  The time is NOW!!!

PURPOSE...takes COURAGE

I have in the last couple of days met with and talked to and counseled powerful leaders and Pastors.  This is the thing....they are ALL longing for walking in the fulness of their God-given purpose.  I have some, who at the expense of others, will ignore red flags, only to get to move into a building or a place where they can use their talent.  I have some who constantly talk about getting to use their gifting, to the point of self-promotion.  I have others, who have just checked-out of life for now and went underground, as they need some very much needed rest and healing from the hits of life in ministry.  I have others, who once were great men or women of faith, are afraid to take the risk again for God and step out and into what God has called them to do.  I have others who are SO discouraged, they don't even know where God is anymore in their lives.  All of this to say.......ENOUGH is ENOUGH!!  The enemy is trying to take us out and wear out the Saints and the Sons of God!

I want to be the person who can SPEAK LIFE and HEALING back into leaders, pray for them when they are not strong enough to pray for themselves.  I want to REMIND THEM of who they are in CHRIST, mighty warriors and sons of God!  I want to stop the hurt and the pain, even wounds inflicted in the house of their friends.  

We as THE BODY of Christ, and sons and daughters of God, have got to come together in UNITY!!!  We have GOT to come together in COMMUNITY!!  If we do not stand together, the enemy will divide us, isolate us and pick us off one by one.

It's time to GET ourselves back into the game, RISE UP and STAND TOGETHER and take back the Kingdom for GOD!!  It's time that we pay attention to what REALLY is the TRUE HEART of the Father.....to LOVE GOD, and then LOVE our neighbor's as ourselves!!  

In this Season, I will NOT, I repeat NOT QUIT!!!

RISE UP MIGHTY WARRIOR, with COURAGE....DRAW your sword out of it's sheath, and lift up a BATTLE CRY!!! 

HALLELUJAH, we HAVE THE VICTORY, JESUS already WON it FOR US!!  NOW ....MOVE OUT!
