I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

I had the wonderful experience of being able to truly feel Christ within me, and not only did I feel amazing as I walked in the faith, but I was also able to speak the words of God from my own mouth.  Let me give you a little background so that you can understand my amazement at my own GOD given abilities.  I just returned to work from jury duty this week and was made aware of a new job opening within the company.  I quickly contacted HR to inquire about the position, since it had become open a few weeks prior while I was out, I could no longer access the application online, in short the job posting had closed.  The HR rep opened the position application, and said she would call me once she got the information and could set up my interview.  The next day the HR rep was scheduled to be out of town for interviews, however her flight was cancelled and she called over to my office a little after 8 to see if I could do a 10:00 am interview, of course I said "YES!!" excited to have the opportunity to be seen and considered.  Five minutes later it occurred to me that I had not allowed myself time to prep for the interview, so I quickly printed my resume and got to work.  Once I finished prepping I had about thirty minutes left until my interview time, I nervously began to wonder what I should do.  When I looked up and saw my Fearless verses from God printout I began reciting the verses, when I got to the end of the last scripture my mouth kept going.  Suddenly I was in full blown prayer, only it was a different sort of prayer, I sounded convinced I sounded sure I sounded like someone not quite like myself, if that makes any sense.  My prayer encouraged me! By the time I reached the conference room there was no stopping me, I was walking in the word of God, I was ready to move mountains, slay dragons (sorry I've been reading sci-fi!), or anything else that wanted to get between me and what my God says! Well the interview went great, but honestly I was on such a spiritual high from that prayer that nothing could bring me down.  It constantly amazes me at how swiftly the Lord sends me aid, every time that I've stumbled, fallen, or been afraid, My God has showed up and showed out! This is a trust that I can feel has taken deep root within me, a trust unlike any other and who could be more worthy than He "who loved me and gave himself for me."?

The arrogance of man will be brought low and the pride of men humbled; the LORD alone will be exalted in that day, and the idols will totally disappear.
There are times when my flesh becomes too much to fight against.  I fall to my knees and pray that the Lord humble me, break me into a million pieces and create me anew.  Lord do not let me be filled with my selfish desires, do not let me seek my own way, create in me a humble spirit, fill me and guide me as only you can.  I need you alone, no one else will do, can't nobody love me like #Jesus.

"I hate divorce," says the LORD God of Israel... "So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith."Malachi 2:16

This is my verse of the day, I honestly hesitate to post it to my facebook page.  I think with all of the divorcees that I know it may be offensive.  However, I think we are all sinners anyway so there really isn't too much that should offend you if you recognize that we are saved only by the grace of God.  Surely you know that no sin is greater than the other, and that judging someone for their circumstance doesn't make your own circumstance any better. I don't like divorce either but I recognize it is a reality of the world we live in.  I pray that we work to heal those who would let us, and that we pray for those who will not.  And please keep me in prayer, I wrestle with my humanity and my flesh daily.
