Focus on God, not the problems… Testimony

CHAIN BREAKERS…FOCUS ON GOD, not your problems in 2016.
One thing I knew better than to do, during my journey of Marriage Restoration, was to look at my problems. And yes many giants faced me…
1) My husband left me because I relapsed…
2) Which meant my income was initially stripped from me…
3) 2 months later, I stopped running from God and got delivered in my bedroom…
4) Two weeks after that, I ended up in jail for cashing a check, that came in my ministry mailbox (I thought God had someone send it for my rent)…but oddly the check had no name on the line, to: ____… and made out for Eight Hundred-Fifty Dollars… $850.00, for: April Rent… and was signed…
5) I was arrested, which caused me to sit down for 3 months…
6) Which allowed me time to read the bible from cover to cover… I had no idea what God was doing inside of me (in that jail cell), but looking back, we were forming a relationship…
7) I got out, but God was not finished restoring me yet… so the Lord built walls around me that my family could not penitrate… it was then my oldest daughter told the Department of Family and Children Services I was homeless…
8) in order to “protect” my younger children from me (then 14, 11, 5), they removed them from my care… this was more of a paperwork procedure; since, I had already allowed the children to stay with my daughter…
9) I was now in a court situation, working a case plan, in order to prove my stability, to get my children back…
10) while I was incarcerated my previous ex-husband signed away his parental rights; just three weeks after I got out of jail, which essentially made it easier for the courts to justify taking my parental rights, of my then 11-year-old son, Samuel, and lost permanent custody of my child.
11) I lived in my other daughter’s truck for 2 weeks… got a job but my daughter would not give me my social security card or my birth certificate, causing that job to be put on hold for the next 6 weeks…
12) a bed opened up at a shelter 20 miles north from my family… 2 weeks later, my ex-husband found out I was using our daughter’s truck and took it away, which left me once again without transportation…
13) I worked on my case plan constantly… the case plan included the following requirements be met in a 6 month time frame: stable income, stable housing, counseling, drug classes, parenting classes and visitation… went to church and volunteered, every time the doors were open, all while on probation and making their costly appointments…
14) only to come back to the shelter everyday to a roommate, that walked in constant jealousy towards me… one evening I came in late from a day of church activities and my roommate & I got into a verbal altercation… the next morning, the shelter manager asked her to leave, she retaliated by lying to get me kicked out as well…
15) Faced once again with the possibility of homelessness, I stayed on a mattress, in a friends garage filled with garbage, 20 miles from all of my court necessary business… there were many days I still had to walk 5 +/- miles to and/ or from work… while once a week walking up to 40 miles in a given day, to handle the issues of my case plan, visitation and probation,
16) always searching to do better, I found a job as a live in care-taker, caring for an elderly couple, in hospice
17) three weeks later the man, passed on to glory, the week before Christmas…
18) the family that hired me apparently felt awkward taking personal care of their step-father, and abruptly asked me to leave, hours after his death…
19) thankfully, I had come to know one of the grandchildren and his girlfriend graciously invited me to come stay in her finished basement through the holidays… and as God would have it I ended up staying 5 months and gained a second family…
20) blessed, but now being 30 miles away from all of my classes and probation, I was yet again, wondering will I ever see light at the end of my tunnel??? During this time, I was able to get my classes moved to the area, finished counseling and drug classes, fought hard and long but was able to get my visitation moved just 2 walking miles away… but sadly this was not permanent and I had yet to acquire employment…
21) when summer was nearing and family would be coming to stay, it was time for me to move on… thankfully, I filed taxes for a few clients and was able to find a room to rent in a home, and continued to trust God for a job…
22) that happened the day after divorce court,the enemy thought he had me this time, BUT GOD, I just kept my eyes on the Lord and kept pressing through…
23) but this job would take me another 20 miles further from my family…
24) I worked the 3rd shift as night auditor and m.o.d. for the next 3 months and was blessed after my first check to secure a mini-apt in an older hotel across the street from my job…
25) that all came to a sudden halt, when yet again, I was lied on by a fellow employee… people sadly can not handle another having peace and undisturbed composure, when their life looks altogether, but is falling apart at the seems…
26) only day out of the blue my husband called and we ended up going to church together and things just starting falling into place after that…
27) although at this point I had completed my case plan, but DFCS refused
 to believe that my life had changed… rather than fighting my husband and doing things my way, I continued to trust God and our next court day, I told the courts it would be best if our daughter, stayed with her Father and agreed, that my son, could stay with his sister, rather than change his schooling in his junior year of high school…
28) SUDDENLY after court my husband asked me to lunch and later we went together to pick our daughter up from school, planning to have dinner together that night before returning to the hotel… my husband asked me to move back home…

Chains of Misunderstanding…

I Hear Chains of Misunderstanding Breaking…
When our prayers don’t seem to be reaching heaven, because we haven’t yet seen manifestation, often times we turn inward. 
Questioning God (after Salvation; a true turning, fully surrendered to the Will of God): 

How come “I” haven’t seen “my” breakthrough?

What am “I” doing wrong? 

Where did “I” mess up again? 
We being trying to figure out how to obtain the answer from God. Maybe if “I” just had the right words like sister so-and-so, maybe if “I” had more to give, maybe God doesn’t really like “me”, maybe “I’m” not really loved by God… recognize these are all LIES being fed to our minds by the enemy and our own stinkin’ thinkin’.
In essence, if we don’t still and stop those types of thoughts, like it or not, we begin the practice of sorcery, it’s an attempt to make us “think” we can manipulate God.
The best prayers come from the depths of your being, your words, your tears of fully surrendering to the Will of God and consciously communing with Abba constantly. He is looking at the condition of our hearts, to bless and promote us. I am reminded of David in the book of Samuel. David messed up a lot, but God favored him… because He was after Gods heart.
I sense some wait longer periods of time for their prayers to be answered because “they think” their is a complicated formula “they” need to figure out, to getting “their” prayer answered. Saints there is a formula, but it’s not complicated!!! 
Jesus gave it to us… 

Matthew 6:33&34 (TPT) – 

33“ So #above #all, constantly #chase after the realm of God’s kingdom and the #righteousness #that #proceeds #FROM #HIM.

#THEN… all these less important things will be given to you abundantly.
34 #Refuse to worry about tomorrow, but #deal with each challenge that comes your way, one day at a time. Tomorrow will take care of itself.” 

(aka #REST; in what Jesus already accomplished on the cross… your answered prayer according to His Promise). 
Chain Breakers Seek God DAILY… chase after HIS Heart… concern ourselves with Him and His perfecting us to BE more like Christ… THEN your promise will manifest, #UNCHNED . 🤗

I Hear Testimony Chains Breaking…

It’s my desire to give gifts to others throughout the year, but often impossible to give to everyone. This morning in my time with the Lord, He showed me a way that I can give a simple gift of suggestion to each one of you.

Several years after deliverance from my awful past of drug abuse. I was spending to much time looking back on the previous 8 yrs and beating myself up for all of the poor choices I had made. I think we all have been subject to the enemy making us feel we wasted so many years. To the point of questioning, how could we ever leave a legacy for our children and our children’s children?

During my time #STANDING for MARRIAGE RESTORATION and TOTAL FAMILY RESTORATION, I never forget Holy Spirit showing me that if He was able to get through to my stubborn self, why would I then think He couldn’t get through to my husband and family?
It was then that I made a conscience effort to start sharing what I hear Holy Spirit speak in our time together.

But why? Why would a come to a public forum to share my ugly past? I was quickly reminded of a scripture I read when I first came back to the Lord. Revelation 12:11.

It is in sharing that I have found freedom and the desire to never go back to using to cover up my pain. Each step I have taken to expose myself to the opinions of others has allowed the Lord to add another link to my chain. Giving enough slack that eventually would allow him to BREAK THE CHAINS that have held me captive; from walking in complete and total victory.

Maybe you are one like I was, that had so many hidden secrets that exposing yourself would cause others to turn from you? I determined that freeing myself from my past and allowing myself to be me (whether or not others approved), was much more important to my continuous growth and advancement in the Kingdom of God. Telling on myself (truth) was actually necessary to still and stop the enemy from advancing in my life.

My gift to each of you this year is a gift the Lord gave all of us…
HIS WORD and the ability to share it with others. I’m not suggesting you tell your past to the point that you harm others. What I am suggesting is transparency. Allowing others to see and understand they’re not alone. We all have fallen and made mistakes… BUT we can get back up and be a positive influence in the lives of others.
The only thing worse than falling is allowing others to believe you have never fallen. ONLY JESUS WAS PERFECT AND LED A PERFECT LIFE.

Give those in your realm of influence, an open door to see you weren’t always a wonderful person. BUT a person with issues just like everyone else. When we have been freed up from our old foolish ways it is our job to teach the younger generation that GETTING UP IS POSSIBLE. It takes a conscience effort and a willingness to expose ourselves to people that may not still want to be acquainted with us because we fell back.


#PayItForward and Be #UNCHNED

Revelation 12:7-11 (NLT)

7 Then there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon and his angels. 8 And the dragon lost the battle, and he and his angels were forced out of heaven. 9 This great dragon—the ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, the one deceiving the whole world—was thrown down to the earth with all his angels.

10 Then I heard a loud voice shouting across the heavens,
“It has come at last—
salvation and power
and the Kingdom of our God,
and the authority of his Christ.a
For the accuser of our brothers and sisters
has been thrown down to earth—
the one who accuses them
before our God day and night.

11And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb
and by their testimony.
And they did not love their lives so much
that they were afraid to die.

The problem with Accepting Advice from too many sources …


My question for you is this… How many of the people constantly giving you marital advice have actually had themselves restored and then their marriage?
No disrespect intended to anyone… But many are in the place of brokenness and broken marriage themselves because of opinions (theirs, Moms, Dads, Sisters, Brothers, Aunties, Uncles, Friends, Coworkers, even Pastors). 
The fact is that marriage restoration is actually about our individual healing and eventually the rest will follow. Each restoration comes with its own set of unique steps to be accomplished, with ingredients to be added or elements to be removed. A formula only Holy Spirit holds; the secret to yours. 
Nothing wrong with seeking advice, just know those who you are seeking direction from. One to three close prayer warriors willing to go before the Father on your behalf that have walked the path of restoration AND have a successful testimony, could possibly give you tried and tested solutions. But then even those should be second in nature only to Abba, who knows the end from the beginning and what is completely necessary for YOUR restoration. 
Having said that, if your spouse is now willing to allow a minimal friendship without strings and laid out plans for how it will turn out, gives you both freedom to continue to grow in Christ while allowing Holy Spirit to do THE WORK NECESSARY. 
How do I know? I have gone this way twice now. Once reserving a small portion of the outcome to my actions and once in total surrender. The latter has held out to be the answer, the former was reconciled but eventually ended in divorce and 11 yrs later is STILL dealing with me & our children in an ugly manner. 
Be #UNCHNED from natural ways.🔐 Let Jesus Set You & Your Marriage Supernaturally  FREE~N~THEE! ❤

Now Walk It Out!!!


The next time the enemy wants to call you out, puts you down, brings up your past, blames you or any of the likeness thereof, then I want you to go back and re-read this post as many times as you need to be reminded of who God says you are…NOW WALK IT OUT!!!

YOU WERE A SINNER according Romans 5:19 (AMP) For just as by one man’s disobedience (failing to hear, [a ]heedlessness, and carelessness) the many were constituted sinners, so by one Man’s obedience the many will be constituted righteous (made acceptable to God, brought into right standing with Him). 1 John 1:9 (AMP) If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just (true to His own nature and promises) and will forgive our sins [dismiss our lawlessness] and [continuously] cleanse us from all unrighteousness [everything not in conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action].

YOU NEEDED A SAVIOR according to John 3:16 (AMP) For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten ([a ]unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life and Romans 10:9 (AMP) Because if you acknowledge and confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and in your heart believe (adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth) that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

YOU HAVE ACCEPTED JESUS, as your Lord and Savior, knowing that you were helpless without him and have openly admitted that, with the knowledge that there is no other way to the Father, THEREFORE YOU ARE ACCEPTED according to Acts 4:12 (AMP) And there is salvation in and through no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by and in which we must be saved.

YOU ARE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS according to Romans 5:21 (AMP) For our sake He made Christ [virtually] to be sin Who knew no sin, so that in and through Him we might become [[a ]endued with, viewed as being in, and examples of] the righteousness of God [what we ought to be, approved and acceptable and in right relationship with Him, by His goodness]..

YOU BECAME SPIRIT FILLED with the Spirit of the Living God, at that very moment when you accepted him to come into your heart and take over your life, Acts 1:8 (AMP) But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth and Colossians 2:10(AMP) And you are in Him, made full and having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—and reach full spiritual stature]. And He is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power].

YOU ARE SEALED according to 2 Corinthians 1:22(AMP) [He has also appropriated and acknowledged us as His by] putting His seal upon us and giving us His [Holy] Spirit in our hearts as the security deposit and guarantee [of the fulfillment of His promise].

YOU ARE A SLAVE TO RIGHTEOUSNESS according to Romans 6:18 (AMP) And having been set free from sin, you have become the servants of righteousness (of conformity to the divine will in thought, purpose, and action).

YOU HAVE TO RIGHT TO CALL YOURSELF A CHILD OF GOD according to John 1:12(AMP) But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the authority (power, privilege, right) to become the children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name—

YOU ARE A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD according to 1 Peter 2:9 (AMP)But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God’s] own [a ]purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.10 Once you were not a people [at all], but now you are God’s people; once you were unpitied, but now you are pitied and have received mercy.

YOU ARE AN HEIR TO THE THRONE OF GOD according to Romans 8:17 (AMP) And if we are [His] children, then we are [His] heirs also: heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ [sharing His inheritance with Him]; only we must share His suffering if we are to share His glory.

YOU ARE A SWEET SMELLING AROMA TO GOD according to 2 Corinthians 2:15 (AMP) For we are the sweet fragrance of Christ [which exhales] unto God, [discernible alike] among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing:

YOU ARE A DISCIPLE OF JESUS CHRIST according to Isaiah 54:13 And all your [spiritual] children shall be disciples [taught by the Lord and obedient to His will], and great shall be the peace and undisturbed composure of your children.

YOU ARE A SOLDIER IN GOD’S ARMY according to Ephesians 6:11 (amp) Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil.

YOU ARE LIGHT IN A DARK AND DYING WORLD according to Matthew 5:14 (AMP) You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.

YOU ARE FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE IN HIS LIKENESS according to Psalm 139:14 (AMP) I will confess and praise You for You are fearful and wonderful and for the awful wonder of my birth! Wonderful are Your works, and that my inner self knows right well.

YOU ARE HIS WORKMANSHIP according to Ephesians 2:10 (AMP) For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), [a]recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].

YOU ARE APPROVED OF GOD according to Romans 8:1 (AMP)Therefore, [there is] now no condemnation (no adjudging guilty of wrong) for those who are in Christ Jesus, who live [and] walk not after the dictates of the flesh, but after the dictates of the Spirit.

YOU ARE BEING TRANSFORMED according to Romans 12:2 (AMP) Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].

YOU HAVE BEEN CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST according to Galatians 2:20&21 (AMP) I have been crucified with Christ [in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ (the Messiah) lives in me; and the life I now live in the body I live by faith in (by adherence to and reliance on and complete trust in) the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself up for me. [Therefore, I do not treat God’s gracious gift as something of minor importance and defeat its very purpose]; I do not set aside and invalidate and frustrate and nullify the grace (unmerited favor) of God. For if justification (righteousness, acquittal from guilt) comes through [observing the ritual of] the Law, then Christ (the Messiah) died groundlessly and to no purpose and in vain. [His death was then wholly superfluous.]



Galatians 6 Amplified Bible (AMP)

1 Brethren, if any person is overtaken in misconduct or sin of any sort, you who are spiritual [who are responsive to and controlled by the Spirit] should set him right and restore and reinstate him, without any sense of superiority and with all gentleness, keeping an attentive eye on yourself, lest you should be tempted also.
2 Bear (endure, carry) one another’s burdens and [a]troublesome moral faults, and in this way fulfill and observe perfectly the law of Christ (the Messiah) and complete [b]what is lacking [in your obedience to it].
3 For if any person thinks himself to be somebody [too important to condescend to shoulder another’s load] when he is nobody [of superiority except in his own estimation], he deceives and deludes and cheats himself.
4 But let every person carefully scrutinize and examine and test his own conduct and his own work. He can then have the personal satisfaction and joy of doing something commendable [[c]in itself alone] without [resorting to] boastful comparison with his neighbor.
5 For every person will have to bear ([d]be equal to understanding and calmly receive) his own [[e]little] load [f][of oppressive faults].
6 Let him who receives instruction in the Word [of God] share all good things with his teacher [contributing to his support].
7 Do not be deceived and deluded and misled; God will not allow Himself to be sneered at (scorned, disdained, or mocked [g]by mere pretensions or professions, or by His precepts being set aside.) [He inevitably deludes himself who attempts to delude God.] For whatever a man sows, that and [h]that only is what he will reap.

#REnewal & #TakeOver


I wanted to share with each of you where I have been for the past week or so, spiritually. The old man has tried to rise up in me. I was allowing the enemy to whisper nonsense in my ear. Fill my head with lies and distract me from the promises, I KNOW HE HAS SPOKEN. I notice many in the body, real warriors, are dealing with the same. Let’s be real and roll up our sleeves here. You know what I’m referring to… those same old stupid lies (the ones you have overcome in the past) … YOUR not good enough, that’s not for YOU, that will never happen for YOU, who do YOU think you are?

Stupid Stupid Stupid Ridiculous LIES!!!

A couple of months ago, I KNEW the blessing was on it’s way and then it seemed like I had missed it completely. Not just because the answer seemed like it had been ‪#‎twisted‬, but I wasn’t sensing it like before. It literally seemed so close that I could reach out and touch it and then all of the sudden it was gone.

I had to remind myself the TEACHER is always silent during the TEST. When God seems to get silent, this is when the enemy comes forth to distract. God is only silent because HE RELEASED AN ANOINTING ON YOUR BEHALF AND HAS ANSWERED YOUR PRAYER!

TODAY, RESURRECTION HAS ARRIVED AND IS ALIVE!!! I am hearing two words going into this New Season…

God has released an anointing on our situations and the enemy has seen it. He is trying to stop it through distraction. BUT IT WON’T WORK… The harder the attack of the mind comes you must know, the BIGGER the BLESSING! What we have to do is hang on to the promise, without seeing the answer. BLIND FAITH on another level. Hold on to the promises that God has spoken like your next breathe depends on it!

GET RID of that ‪#‎StinkinThinkin‬, by GETTING RID of your‪#‎OldGraveClothes‬. Go back to the beginning and ‪#‎RENEW‬ your life to Christ Jesus, #RENEW your confession! JESUS makes ALL things NEW, when we renew our lives to HIM!

Know WHO you are in Christ and WHOSE BLOOD SACRIFICE has already accomplished your ANSWERED PRAYER!!! See your issues on the cross and exchange them for HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS! We have a RIGHT to be blessed! We are KINGS KIDS! HEIRS TO THE THRONE! Jesus already Broke our Death Chains. It’s up to YOU to SPEAK LIFE and live FREE from the grave.

We know we overtake the enemy according to 2 Corin 10:4&5(KJV) how? 4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;



Royal Crown


From Disaster… To Design


It’s been four years ago today that I had a rhinoplasty for a deviated septum… and then the drama started. Turns out that anesthesia can be a trigger point for a recovered addict and relapse can occur if not recognized.

Relapse did occur, so did separation from my husband and children, divorce & loss of parental rights to my son,  Samuel, loss of my home, transportation and literal freedom, health, ministry, losses of all kinds, BUT GOD – #DELIVERED ME OUT OF IT ALL!!! It wasn’t easy and things got really bad before anything even started to take a hint of light at the end of my tunnel.  I was determined that God could turn it all around if I surrendered it ALL to Him.

#Restoration was about me first being restored back the Father, Son & Holy Spirit. In time with much tenacity towards my Lord & Savior, Jesus #UNCHNED me from my past and Set ME Free.

#Reconciliation came first to my husband, then children, and #Recovery of material things has come over time. ALL of this has been a blessing but the biggest gift was coming to understand that God Almighty loves me so much that he would strip everything from me that I was secure in and with to get my attention and RESTORED ME BACK TO THEE.

Being restored is a process, a journey and your life will be changed from the inside out. With God ALL things are possible and with God you CAN do things through Christ who strengthens YOU. He will take everything broken and mold you back into HIS magnificently designed piece of Art.

In His Love, A-M <{{{><
