Why are you marking it?
How are you marking it?
Inquiring minds want to know!
I want to know.
When conflict comes or someone is intimidated by you … how do you respond?
Doom and gloom or excitement and praise?
When conflict comes or someone is intimidated by you … what do you choose to do?
Lower your standards, Maintain your standards,
Or go after raising your standards to even higher levels?

Question: Have you ever been in a place or around people where you were uncomfortable? Do you avoid crowds or specific places or events?
Last week In our Thursday Prayer group, Bob brought up the gift if discernment.
This morning I get this insight:
I believe we all have it in some degree. The places or events that make you uncomfortable are often because of discernment that you have that the enemy attacks because you don’t recognize you have the gift of discernment, don’t know how to walk in the gift of discernment or need to physically and emotionally strengthen yourself to be better able to walk in and grow in the gift of discernment.
Jennifer Eivaz brought up some interesting information in her sharing her experience with the gift as a new believer who was unaware of it.
Here’s a link if you want to listen:
In the past I did sessions with spoken affirmations to build ourselves mentally and emotionally. Thinking I am going to be walking through then again with myself as a wellness check. Let me know if you want to join in with me.
I adore how God brings things into our awareness when we don’t value or put feet to the insights He gives us of steps to take in the stillness of our time with Him.
Oh how much further we would be in our growth if we got it and took action immediately in the spiritual realm instead of having to go through the emotional then mental to get to the final physical realm of “get it or be done”.
Blessings to you!
So I woke this morning with the chorus of the rise and shine song playing in my head (not ready for the white self-love, self-hug jacket with the purple blingy buckles yet!😎)
Then I looked for the song in case on a rare chance someone didn't know what it was. Some of the videos were annoying - gave me a praise that those weren't playing in my head, my voice was much better. Lol.
However I liked this one. In listening to it verse and all I thought how appropriate for all of us.
"The Lord told Noah to get the children out of the muddy muddy"
We all do have "muddy muddy" daily in our lives and God gives us people known and unknown to help get us out of the mud.
The plan of action given is to "rise and shine and give God the glory glory" because we are "children of the Lord."
Some days it's so easy just to take the mud bath and pretend it's to enhance the beauty of our skin ... but we are still wallowing in mud when we don't have to and if we weren't wallowing in the dirt our skin would already be glowing from the beauty of the Lord shining through us.
There's always something to sing and give praise about in every situation. We have to choose to look, find it, claim it then give glory for it.
So my thought for today is we are to put on our mud boots, get out of the muck and irritate the crap out of everyone else who's wallowing in the mud by being sincerely joyful, giving God the glory that He loved us and desires us so much that He created us and put us here in this place for this specific time ... and mud.
Then I found this grown up version of the song and really like the words.
And wouldn’t you know …
I adore when God sends affirmations of what we are hearing and receiving!
So Creflo Dollar started his confessions time this morning with the rise and shine statement. (Affirmation zing to the heart that I’m listening & hearing!)
I encourage you to watch and verbally speak out the declarations he says.
Here's todays link:
So what’s being spoken and confessed into your life?
Share below please. We want to share a part of your testimony!
We’re all good at many things … but there’s that one thing God created in us that sparks a fire so big and passionate. That’s what we are all looking for to fulfill our life to its utmost. It’s there for all of us.
We’re here to support you!
As you know, I’m passionate about Standing The Gap from where you are to where you can and want to be.
Today this popped up in my feed and I was lead to click and listen.
These words still hold true today.
My husband and I have over 27 years of relationship marriage commitment and covenant. We knew each other less than 4 months from meet to married with no former connections of any form.
My dad always said to date a rich man. My caregiver heart was always after encouraging and supporting the one in a challenge. I didn’t understand nor ever get what my dad was saying since I was not money focused in any of my relationships in life. Until one day … the aha moment hit … you marry someone you date and if you have your lifetime spouse foundational needs list in place and only date accordingly, you won’t settle for less when forming your legacy foundation for the rest of your life. It’s a great guideline to stay focused and not swayed by emotions, life events, etc.
Rich is more than money. Fertile dirt is described as rich as its full of nutrients, life, and growth. It’s a base to start from and improve upon.
Randy & I have gone through many hard challenges in our years. We survived by God’s mercy and grace, a lot of prayers (ours and other prayer warriors) and out of stubbornness. We made a commitment before God and there is no option other than love each other and seek to see each other as God sees us.
Marriage is some of the hardest work you will ever do but some of the highest paying and most rewarding.
Billy Graham’s words of what to look for in a mate are real today. The choices we make impact our relationship for the rest of our life. Take this serious.
Randy and I weren’t on the same platform when we met. Thus we added more work, demands, and stress on ourselves and marriage. We walked dark challenges. Our sons were born into our family relationship and didn’t have a choice and reaped the consequences rich and poor of their parents choices. Even as adulted children our relationship impacts their lives.
The moment Randy and I said “ I Do” in front of God … we became the Best for each other. We have made some choices that were unnecessary and caused negative consequences because we didn’t have our vision written down for our life course and calling in the past. We are walking out uniting, declaring and decreeing our life purposed calling with a written vision posted to keep us moving forward.
I choose to be more in love with my husband every single day. No matter how hard the choice maybe at some moments, it is worth it. Yes, we still have things come up we have to renounce and repent for. However, the reward is a deeper relationship, bond and more love, joy, peace & laughter everyday despite life’s challenges.
If you are single, I encourage you to listen and serious apply this information to your life. Bible truths are foundational and covenant.
Make wise choices.
Build a strong covenant foundation for your legacy building marriage.
Leave a strong relationship testimony for your current and future legacies to build on.
Marriage is a relationship choice, a covenant commitment.
Marriage is NOT a feeling or ceremony to check off your list.
Marriage done with God’s covenant is very blessed, highly favored and withstands all.
