Do you ever get so excited about God all you ever want to do is talk about Him and praise Him and grow closer to Him but everyone around doesn't? They just don't have that desire to push more and draw closer? That's how I've felt lately. Not that I think I'm better than anyone, because I'm not by any means. But lately I've had the "new convert" joy back. And no one else seems to be happy or want to take God seriously. I just want what he wants. I want to be as close as I can get. I want as much as He will give me. I want to be a mighty woman of God. I want to be the person that can get a prayer through in a second. Not take a week. I just want to be full of Him. But it seems like no one else has that same desire. Everyone is so busy all the time. I don't ever want to be too busy for God. I don't ever want to be so busy that my desire dwindles down to nothing. I want to continuously grow in Him. I want to spread my joy. I just want it to be an explosion of His joy to everyone around me. I want it to spread like wildfire. And again, I don't think I'm better than anyone, I just don't feel the joy from anyone else that I feel inside of me. I want to shout it from the roof tops! I want the boldness to witness to others and be a light. I am trying so hard not let others unjoyfulness (ha I made a word :]) get me discouraged. I want my joyfulness to spread to them. Not the opposite. I'm tired of conversing with others about things that don't profit the Lord. Not that it's bad conversations, it just won't matter in the end. I want to stay focused on Heaven. Just pray for me. I know the Lord is in control. And I can't wait to see what He has in store for my life!!

"I can pray, until the walls fall down, until there's healing all around, that's something I can do"

I went to Gold Leaf Church of God tonight in Satsuma, AL. It was a great service. The pastor preached on prayer and its importance in our lives. How we have to pray until our flesh and carnal minds are gone and we're completely in the spirit. It really got me thinking...

How much more effective could we, could I, be if we all really got down to business with God? How much closer could we get if we just tried a little?? 

God wants to give us so much. He wants to pour his blessing out on us and give us all that we desire. And He would, if we would give Him to opportunity. So many of us are so worried about what others think and what others expect of us that we forget what GOD thinks and what HE expects and demands of us. If we would all focus on prayer and hearing from God we would see the true meaning of revival.

I know I don't ever want to go with Him by my side. I don't ever want to forget what He has done for me and where He brought me from. And I sure don't ever want to quit praying!

The moment we quit praying is the moment the devil comes in starts trying to attack us and pull us down. We must always stayed prayed up and on FIRE for the LORD. 

It takes more than just one little simple, "now I lay me down to sleep" type prayer. It takes really PRAYING. Putting your all into it. Showing God that you mean business, that you are not leaving until He blesses you. Getting the desire from Him. And staying there for a while. Tarrying. Not leaving until our cups are overflowing with power

So many people get stuck in the routine of saying one short little prayer and gettin gup and moving on. Not even giving God time to move. 

"But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." -Isaiah 40:31

More than I deserve

Tonight was amazing.

I felt God like I NEVER have before. It was so strong and just... amazing. There isn't really a word that can fully describe Him and His power.


even those don't fully show the reality of it.

I was reminded of the time when I first got saved. How full of His love and power I was. I just let Him flow out of me and work in me with no "backtalk", so to speak. I'm learning to go back to that. To being obedient and submissive to the Lord. It's been a struggle getting back, but it is finally coming, and boy it's coming strong!

When the Lord says He is going to work something out, He means it!! He does so much more than we deserve. And oh how thankful I am!

One verse that the Lord showed me tonight was Isaiah 54:6-8 "For the Lord hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused, saith thy God. For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee. In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the Lord thy redeemer."

And that verse was exactly what I needed to here. Or read.

I am just so thankful for God's grace and mercy!!!

I just can NOT get over how amazing my God is!!
No person on this Earth deserves a God who does so much and blesses each one of His children the way he does. I am so thankful.

He is continuing to pour out his blessings on me each day.
Yesterday me and a friend went up to our church about an hour and a half early just to pray and prepare for the service. The Lord just poured His Spirit out on us. It was the sweetest spirit I have felt in a LONG time!!

All I wanted to do was worship Him.

It made me think....
So many times we get stuck in the same routine everyday. And we forget to stop and take the time to worship Him. There are so many things that this world can offer, but I wouldn't trade my life for the Lord for one bit of that mess! I don't ever want to forget to stop and take the time to worship Him.

Thank Him

So, it's been quite a while since I last wrote a blog... The past year has been kind of rough.. Spiritually speaking. All the ups and downs and back and forth and not knowing where to turn.

But God always steps in right on time!!

Even when you think He has left you, never to return, He hasn't.

Hebrews 13:5 says "Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."

And oh how true that is!!!
I've learned so much through this valley I've been in.

Never give up.
Never lose faith.
Fight when you feel the battle is already lost.

and most importantly,

Thank God for everyday that he wakes you, thank Him for every storm you face, thank Him for NEVER leaving you.


And don't forget to praise Him along the way.

Every storm or battle or valley that you go through has a purpose. You can't see it now but they say hindsight is 20/20. There is always something better coming!

I'm just so joyful today. God has completed turned me upside down and inside out. I can't wait to be back in His house and praise Him Sunday. I plan to praise Him everyday, but there is just something about being in the house of the Lord.

No matter what, stand strong!

(I promise it won't be as long before my next blog!)
