You are Unique!

All of us have characteristics that make us unique. Did you know that Marie Antoinette had a jaw issue that made her famous for permanent adorable https://images.app.goo.gl/sd1YvmD3hZ5ZT3Wc9
The female character of my book has a similar trait!
What “flaw” do you have that makes you uniquely fascinating?

Fear Not- I am with you.

Rise in Confidence

Fall is a great time for remembering. Has 2019 taken the air out of you or have you risen to new heights in the Lord? God is calling us higher. To obedience. To Trust and Obey.

Scripture says in Isaiah to put on the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. In Timothy, God reminds us, we have not been given a spirit of fear but of boldness, confidence and a sound mind.

Are you bold or fearful?

Confident or shrinking back?

Of sound mind or heavy hearted?

This has been a challenging year for me. One in which I found myself shrinking back, becoming fearful and heavy hearted. We as believers are human, but we shouldn’t live this way. So today, I am trusting God to never leave me alone. I am praising God for His faithfulness in directing my steps and leading me in the paths of righteousness for His Name’s sake. I will fear no evil for He is with me!

What is holding you back? Are you afraid of failing? Trust and Obey. God’s got you. Walk closely with Him.

Without a Vision, People Perish

noplanforsyriaLogistics. Forever I have fought my ability to orchestrate logistics. I love to plan something so well that it runs without my help, but it is not the cool job. It is a burdensome job, but done well it brings results.
I see Syria and I hurt for the people who are suffering. The only ones who have thought out logistics for Syria have power, control and other objectives in mind. Using Syria for their own gain is their plan.
Where is the plan on the other side? The plan for good to fill the gap. Does anyone remember the people who need righteousness and justice? Who is planning the logistics of a win?
I read in the news about a father saying they are caught between Assad, extreme Islamic terrorists and a rebel cause with no end game. http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/10/20/20989447-al-qaeda-linked-extremists-cause-new-syria-refugee-crisis?lite&ocid=msnhp&pos=11
I am learning that evil has its plan. The best defense is a good offense and an end strategy. Though in my position I can do little to plan Syria’s future, it is my prayer that a good and righteous leader will arise. One who is selfless, humble and a planner of good for the people.
Is anyone is truly good? Though I have found no one, but Jesus Christ, I pray that those who follow Him will rise up and stand for those who can not stand for themselves.
It takes catching God’s vision for those in our sphere of influence and following His plan for good. It is time for Christians to unite. To plan follow GOD’S PLAN for rescuing a hurting world instead of reacting in surprise to the evil around us.
God has a plan. Follow it today.

Ten Ways to Help Young Mothers in Need

baby

There are so many single moms, expectant mothers, or abused families that need our help.
1.Organize a baby shower.
Find a local faith centered crisis organization and for them with your church group or neighborhood. Diapers, wipes, baby clothes, bottles, there are so many little ways to help.
2. Donate items for moms and children
Most places will gladly accept new and gently used items including: clothing for mother and baby, baby furniture, car seats, strollers and blankets.
3. Baby bottle Drive
Take new, empty baby bottles to your office or church along with information about your local crisis center and have them fill the bottles with their loose change. Every little bit helps!
4. Become a contact person for your church or local ladies group.
Your local crisis care center can then inform you of needs, events, and information that you can pass on to others.
5. Volunteer.
If you have the time, check into the requirements for helping your local center.
6. Get the men involved.
Where there is a hurting mom there is often a hurting dad. Let the men in you church or your life know their godly wisdom is needed for young men who want a chance to do things right for their families but don’t know how.
7. Donate funds.
8. Pray for the workers to have wisdom.
9. Host a fundraiser
10. Pray for the women and children.
