Empowering Thought for Today:  You are extremely important to God!

As a younger person I used to actually think I did not make a difference .  One of my favorite movies is:  It’s a wonderful life!  Many individuals go through there everyday routine of life and never stop and think why am I still around?  The bottom line is “bad and horrific ” things happened to a lot of people.  Whether you’re saved or not at this time God has placed value on your life.  Whether you value what he sees doesn’t make it less true that you are important to him.

 God sent his don to die for you.  Can you imagine that ?  I cannot because I don’t won’t any of my children to due for nobody neither do I want to make that sacrifice .  So wherever you are and whatever you’re doing and whatever you’re going through- God loved us first !   His validation is the only thing that matters.  We need to stop holding people hostage for failing us according to our perspective .  Reach and stretch to receive God’s love.  Let him show you why you were created.  Let him show you your value!!!!!!!!!  

Amen, Lady P.

Empowering Thought for Today:  SHAKE it OFF!

when I was young , a middle schooler my friend and I was on skates and my brother was chasing us.  Of course we had the advantage in our minds because we were faster.  Unfortunately for me my brother caught me and tripped me in my skates.  That day I skinned my face like you skin your knee.  Blood was pouring out of my face from every where not to mention I was disfigured.

The people who saw it was looking at my face in horror and my poor brother was scared and remorseful for what he did although it was simple child ‘s play.  My mother panic and back in my times you didn’t go to emergency rooms and doctors because many African-Americans couldn’t afford it.

I was sent to my adopted mom who looked at me and didn’t flinch.  There was something about her calmness and assurance in that moment that made me keep it together.  I looked in the mirror and I mean I needed a plastic surgeon.  I was crying so bad from the pain and the monstrosity which was now my new look.

I was shunned of course,  people could barely look at me,  but I was told to go outside and I kept my normal routine.  Even when people didn’t want to look at me all scarred.  My adopted mom looked at me everyday as she literally put Vaseline and macurucorn ( I’m sure I’m not spelling it correctly). On my face daily for 3 months.  She was telling me as a young girl:  I love you even though you’re disfigured and rejected by others.  I look at your wounds in spite of the cuts and bruises.  She looked at me and declared you’re going to be healed:  Shake it off!!!!!!

In others words she told me to keep it moving forward this is just a hiccup!!!

That’s what God is saying to many of us.  We have been battle scared and rejected by men.  Disfigured and accused by the enemy,  yet God says SHAKE it OFF!  I am your healer,  I am the one who loves you,  keep looking at me and as you look at me I will become bigger in your life and all the other things will become obsolete.

Today looking at my beautiful face you would never know I had that accident.  I have a small scar near my lip that has faded with time, but it has been a reminder to me when I notice it:  Shake off the insignificant things and press into Christ.

Empowering Thought for Today:  Tag You’re It:  God has chosen you!

when I was younger and not saved I had this deep need to be accepted.  The brokenness and rejection in my own family life cause a deep emptiness.  This sort of made me go out and seek other people’s crumbs.
I was never the “cool kid nor the “brainy” one either. I was the one who didn’t fit in a category.  I was the mis-fit.  I had my own drum I followed.  I was outgoing enough but I was never “chosen” 

My story took on a new identity when Jesus entered my life.  As I read God’s word and found out I was “chosen” my heart rejoiced.  ( Jn 15:16&John 6:44)

God hand picked me, singled me out, placed his attention and affection on me.  The wonderful thing about this is:  I didn’t have to have a certain status , Jesus just accepts me.  I came broken and battered and heart full of pain and grief .  Loneliness used to be my best friend but Jesus has turned it around for me.

No longer do I look to be “chosen” because I already apart of God’s Kingdom.  Even wen others reject me , God hasn’t and on a daily basis I get to talk to God, free of charge and 24/7!

Want to know a secret :  The President isn’t the most powerful man it’s JESUS and he knows me!.

Empowering Thought for Today: You Are Loved!

Paul talks about what love is in the book of Corinthians. He warns that we can have a whole lot of things but if we don’t have love we are nothing but a bunch of noise.

Love bears all things he tells us and out of hope and faith, love is greater.

Fred Hammond wrote a song, one of my favorites. There is No Greater Love.

God’s love cannot compare to anyone’s. When God loves and you know you become so much more peaceful and full Joy. Best of all, whether YOU realize it or not YOU are LOVED every single second that you breath.

Empowering Thought for Today: I love you Lord!

It’s a blessing to wake up every morning and know that God truly loves you. I am exhilarated in knowing that I can also wake up and tell God I love him too.

I have the freedom to talk, praise, pray, read, shout, and dance before a God at any time.

So, today I praise Him! For he is Good.

Empowering Thought for Today: God’s Validation is the only one you Need!

Maybe you’re not the smartest , richest, or thinnest. Maybe you grow up in racism or dysfunction.

I grew up where no one EVER told me I was pretty! Ever. No one ever told me I was smart! This led me to be,über I wasn’t and left me at the mercy of other people’s approval.

Even after I gave my life to Christ, I struggled. Jesus always reached out to the unlovable, the distraught, societies misaligned and misguided people. People that would have been looked over.

The good news is that God has accepted us flaws and sin. His love for us is greater than any sin. He proved his love by sending Jesus. When we accept Jesus we no longer have yo live at the hands of someone else’s approval. Really no one can VALIDATE you like God, no one!

Empowering Thought for Today: Looking for Love? Look to Jesus!

Growing up I’ve hardly heard the words “I Love You”! If my parental figures loved me I didn’t know it nor did I feel it

The enemy used this to plant rejection in my life and I grew up wanting to be accepted and lived at all cost. I don’t want to mislead you to think after I gave my life to Christ that everything magically disappeared .

At this present journey I’m learning nobody can love you like Jesus and I know for a fact that my husband snd children love me. My soul was scarred and broken but Jesus has come to pour oil into every emotional trauma I’ve encountered and he’s there for future hiccups as well. Behind every hurtful experience with people is Satan, wearing a mask and hiding so you will think your issues are people or you think there’s something wrong with you!

I’m her to declare Gods word: Satan CANNOT trump God’s Love for YOU!

Another Empowering Thought: God is my HAPPY!

People look for happiness in money, people, status and things. As a Christian God is my joy and happiness.

Although I’m not happy everyday I’m full of God’s joy because God is my happiness. He never changes on me and yet he changes me!

Empowering Thought for Today: I Pray you know Christ’s LOVE for YOU!

The Apostle Paul Prayed that The Ephesus Church would know the breadth, height , length and depth of Christ Love.

This is my prayer today that we would know by The Holy Spirit how much Christ loves us. That God will give us a revelation of what Jesus did on the cross.
