As we get closer to the new year, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by what could have and should have happened this year. I want to offer a moment of clarity. Stop running from the should of, could of, and would of and focus on what is. You are here now and still, have the opportunity to be celebrated in 2018. The potential that was ignited in you from January could still reign true in December. Don’t give up, you can do it! Check out the meditation video and let me know what you think. Selah.
It Monday ladies and gentlemen so you know what that means. It’s time to close the door on the world and tune into the unfailing love and peace of God.
For today’s meditation, I want you to think about what you want out of this new year. I know that December has just begun, but its never too early to plan a future success. One of the premier steps in progress is in knowing what you want out of your tomorrow.
Take a moment and write down want out of 2019. Share below if you’d like. Selah
Psalms 91 Protection Prayer
I (we) pray for all members of congress and
of the armed forces of our nation, all of our intercessors, teachers,
pastors, friends, enemies, neighbors, doctors, dentists, all people of
Israel, everyone we go to church with, and all of Your workers.
Heavenly Father, I (we) ask You to let us dwell in the secret place of the
most High and abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I (we) ask You
to let us say that You are our Lord, our refuge, our fortress and our God
in whom we can trust. I (we) ask You to deliver us from the snare of the
fowler, and from the deadly pestilence. I (we) ask You to cover each of
us with Your feathers and let us walk under Your wings to take refuge. I
(we) ask You to let Your faithfulness and truth be our shield and armor. I
(we) ask You to let us not be afraid of the terror by night; nor for the
arrow that flieth by day; nor for the deadly pestilence that walketh in
darkness nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. I (we) ask You
to cause a thousand to fall at our side, and ten thousand at our right hand
and not to let any come near us. I (we) ask You to give Your angels
charge over us to keep us in all Your ways and let Your angel’s hands lift
us up, so we do not even dash our foot against a stone or be hurt in any
way. I (we) ask You to let us tread upon the lion and serpent and to let us
trample the young lion and the serpent under our feet. I (we) ask You
Heavenly Father, to answer us when we call upon You, be with us in
trouble, deliver us, honor us and satisfy us with a long life and show us
Your salvation. Heavenly Father, I (we) thank You that these things are
written in Psalms 91, that we can dwell in the secret place of the most
High, and I (we) thank You that we can abide under the shadow of our
Almighty God. I (we) thank You that we can say You are our Lord, our
refuge, our fortress and our God, whom we can trust. I (we) thank You
for delivering us from the snare of the fowler, and from the deadly
pestilence. I (we) thank You for covering each of us with Your feathers. I
(we) thank You that we can walk under Your wings and take refuge. I
(we) thank You that Your faithfulness and truth is our shield and armor. I
(we) thank You that we are not afraid for the terror by night nor for the
arrow that flieth by day; nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness;
nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. I (we) thank You that a
thousand shall fall at our side, and ten thousand at our right hand and
none will come near us. I (we) thank You for giving Your angels charge
over us to keep us in all ways and that Your angel’s hands will lift us up
so we do not dash our foot against a stone. I (we) thank You that we can
tread upon the lion and serpent and trample the young lion and the
dragon under our feet. I (we) thank You that when we call upon You,
You will answer us, and be with us in trouble. Deliver us, honor us,
satisfy us with a long life and show us Your salvation. Heavenly Father, I
am (we are) thankful that our Lord Christ Jesus spoiled all principalities
and powers and made a show of them openly and triumphed over them in
Himself. I (we) claim all that victory for our lives. I (we) reject all the
insinuations, accusations, and temptations of satan. I (we) affirm that the
Word of God is true and we choose to live in obedience to You Lord
Jesus and in fellowship with You. Open our eyes and show us the areas
of our lives that do not please You. Work in us to cleanse us from all
ground that would give satan a foothold against us. We do in every way
stand in all that it means to be your adopted child and we welcome all the
ministry of Your Holy Spirit. Heavenly Father, I (we) pray that now and
through our lives, You would strengthen and enlighten us, show us the
way satan and his demonic spirits are trying to hinder, tempt, lie, and
distort the truth in our lives. Enable us to be the kind of person that will
please you. Enable us to be aggressive in prayer and faith. Enable us to
be aggressive mentally, to think about and practice Your word, and to
give You, Your rightful place in our lives. Heavenly Father, I (we) place
all of my (our) cares, all of my (our) anxieties, all of my (our) worries
and all of my (our) concerns once and for all on You, because I (we)
know that You love me (us) and watch over me (us) according to 1 Peter
5:7. Heavenly Father, I (we) pray for the peace of Jerusalem and may all
those prosper who love You. Psalms 122:6. Heavenly Father, I (we)
pray that You will establish Jerusalem and make her a praise in the earth.
Isaiah 62:7. To God be the Glory. Amen!
Have you ever been in a situation that you know is wrong and you go along just to get along? Or am I the only one?????
In this season we are taking hold of our independence, but this independence, honesty and need to be forthright must start with ourselves.
If someone is gossiping, tell them to be quiet, or make it clear that you are not comfortable with them gossiping around you.
If you are tired of having just enough money at the end of the month, make time to sit down and create a budget.
If you have not been kind to someone, walk up to the person and apologize.
This time of acceptance is not just for everyone around you in this world, it’s for you. You must stand up for what is true in you.
You never know, the courage you express on your job, at school, on in your relationship may inspire people around you to stand in their truth as well… and where there is truth, there is freedom.
Heavenly Father, I (we) come to You now in the Name of my
(our) Lord and Savior Christ Jesus.
Lord Jesus Christ, I (we) ask You, according to John 14:13- 14, to cover
me (us) with Your anointing, glory, and tangible Presence, give me (us) a
fresh new release and flow in my (our) inner man with rivers of living
waters springing up forth abundantly with Life abundant, fill me (us) to
over-flowing with Your favor, compassion and love, Your wisdom and
understanding. Anoint me (us) to hear Your Voice not that of a stranger,
cause me (us) to clearly discern Your Voice over that of a strange voice.
Give me (us) Your eyes to see spiritually, and a heart to understand and
be led by Your Holy Spirit, clearly, help me to be bold, confident and be
obedient, to do Your will. Fill me (us) with Your gifts, anointings, and
blessings and all else You have for me (us). Lord Jesus Christ I (we) ask
You according to John 14:13 – 14 to anoint me (us). Pour out Your
Anointing on me (us). (Apply the anointing oil to the forehead now.) I
(we) receive Your Anointing in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the
Holy Spirit. Lord Jesus Christ, I (we) ask You, according to John 14:13 –
14, to do all these things and let Your love so brightly shine through me
(us) into others and as an act of worship to You, in Jesus’ Name, to God
be the Glory. Amen!
When you don’t do what your supposed to do there are consequences. I have decided to go back to school because there is much to learn in the field of psychology. In order to give the most accurate information, I had to go back to school!
Now, in this journey I have learned to do the right thing the first time! If an assignment is due, I have a better score when I take my time and read through the assignments before giving an answer.
I’m writing this post today because God put on my spirit that many of us choose to do the right thing at the wrong time. Our life is one big assignment… instead of taking the time to develop, research, then respond; we are giving what ever answer comes to the top of our head, hoping that in the end it’s enough to suffice.
Let today be the day you choose to give your best the first time. If you’re on a job give your all! Don’t become lazy and compliant because it’s not your dream, God has you there for a reason so be effective. If you’re in a relationship be attentive and respectful, if you’re a parent, sacrifice for your personal time for time with your child.
Take time and develop yourself so that when you present yourself to the world you give your best answer.
Do you know how to center yourself? We are constantly receiving information from people, social media, employers, magazines and more that shape and mold how we see ourselves and how we experience our life. It is essential for you and me to know how to recalibrate our daily experiences and know how to get quiet in front of GOD.
This is where meditation comes in, Mediation Monday is an intentional opportunity for you to be quiet and allow God to speak to you. Take a moment today and sit in silence. Allow Gods peace to come in and reinvent your day. Selah
Guess what…. its Monday! Here on good girl issues, I’m here to help you take control of your week. By making a few minutes to mediate, you can not only change the atmosphere, but you can change your outlook on the entire week! In Psalms 46:10 God instructs us to be still and Know God, which means that when we choose to sit in the presence of God, with an open areas and a closed mouth, then we can attain real peace and understanding. while it is appropriate to have question and conversation with God, I challenge you to be still today. Allow God to impart His peace into your week. Selah
Do you know where your power lives?
In love… if we learn to love one another and love ourselves, we can then become people who love our jobs, our homes, and our community. This meditation Monday tune into love. When something goes wrong in your day, ask yourself ” how can I help this situation with love?” Check out this new song from Tori Kelly, its a beautiful expression of love and worship. Selah
Here on good girl issues we advocate mental health. A courageous woman named Michelle Williams has came forward as an spokesperson for mental health awareness. She had been battling depression for most of her life and she shares her story here.
People of God do not let mental illness separate you from the love of God! Battling an illness is not a sin nor a crime. The devil wants you to be quite but now is the time to raise your voice. Do not fight alone. Reach out to someone who can help. God loves you and desires for your life to be blessed and prosperous. Check out this champion, she has made it through and so can you! Selah
