Samuel’s SafeHaven

I HEAR CHAINS BREAKING…

This morning I have been studying 1 Samuel. Today is my son, Samuel’s, fourteenth birthday. He was named after the great prophet Samuel. Even as I think about the fact that Samuel has been in the far country for 4 years. I am still STANDING, hopeful and convinced that his return to my care is right around the corner. Not because I am such a great person of faith and word, but because GOD is. When I read the story of when God anointed Samuel as his prophet and how Samuel was obedient to the Lord in giving the people direction. When the people followed the will and way of God they prevailed, but when the people didn’t obey, lives were lost. This is the same in every type of STAND. I would encourage you today to go and read about Samuel and how God upholds his people if they will do what he tells them to do. God has a plan and a purpose for what we are facing and he has already provided a victorious outcome if we will just trust and believe. In His Love, ‪#‎UNCHNED‬

Today I have a prayer request… Samuel accepted Jesus Christ, as Lord and Savior of His Life, at a young age. When I was separated from my husband the courts took my parental rights, but your can’t take away what God has given. Please pray for a doctor to come into Samuel’s path, that will dig deeper and find the true source of what is going on with him. Pray that the family that has adopted him, will set aside their own fears and inhibitions, and sense a great need to reconcile with our family as a whole for Samuels sake, In Jesus Name.

Speak Life

I HEAR CHAINS BREAKING…

I COME TO SPEAK LIFE INTO EVERY BELIEVER READING THIS POST. YOU ARE A CHILD OF THE ONE TRUE KING, JESUS. YOU HAVE AUTHORITY IN HIM AND POWER WITHIN TO COMMAND THE ENEMY TO REMOVE HIMSELF AND FLEE FROM ATTACKING YOUR MIND, MARRIAGE, CHILDREN, HEALTH, FINANCES, CAREER, EDUCATION, HOME, MINISTRY, ETC… USE YOUR AUTHORITY TO SEND HIM BACK TO HELL WHERE HE CAME FROM NEVER TO RETURN. PUT ON YOUR FULL ARMOR TODAY AND WAR FOR YOUR SITUATION LIKE NEVER BEFORE, I BELIEVE GOD IS MOVING IN THIS HOUR AND HE IS WAITING ON HIS PEOPLE TO RISE UP ABOVE THEIR CIRCUMSTANCES AND CALL THOSE THINGS THAT BE NOT, AS THOUGH THEY WERE. I CALL YOU DISCIPLES LED AND TAUGHT OF THE LORD, GREAT IS YOUR PEACE, JOY AND UNDISTURBED COMPOSURE. GREATNESS LIVES ON THE INSIDE OF YOU AND SATAN KNOWS THAT, THIS IS WHY HE IS CAUSING DISTRACTION THROUGH CIRCUMSTANCES. HE KNOWS THAT IF YOU TRULY GET A HOLD OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD WITHIN YOU AND STIR UP THE HOLY SPIRIT YOU “ARE” MORE THAN A CONQUEROR AND THAT YOU CAN HAVE WHAT YOU SAY. A PRAY YOU WILL EACH TAKE HOLD OF YOUR RIGHTFUL PLACE IN THE FAMILY OF GOD AND GO OUT TODAY IN VICTORY, PULLING DOWN STRONGHOLDS AND EVERYTHING THIS IS TRYING TO EXALT ITS SELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, IN JESUS NAME. ‪#‎UNCHNED‬ BY THE GRACE OF GOD

Restoration vs. Healing

I HEAR CHAINS BREAKING:

I don’t know why some are still waiting on restoration (some longer than others), other than God is still working on both of your hearts. Let’s take our eyes off of our marriages being restored for a moment and let’s look at this from a person needing healing. If our mate comes down with a disease possibly life threatening, do we hang on as long as we can? Do we believe for healing as long as we have energy? No, we would call that different. But why? Why do we think that is different? Marriages get sick (not well) and need healing, too. The thing is, Jesus already took stripes on his back, he was beaten, bruised, mocked, laughed at, ridiculed, pierced multiple times for our sickness and disease on the cross, so that we can be ‪#‎healed‬. What if your restoration is only one month away? What if you have been waiting for 12 years like the woman with the issue of blood, but instead of receiving her healing, she gave up prematurely? BUT… What if your answer is around the next bend? Just some things to think about… That doesn’t mean you have to live your life unhappy. Walking with God is a pleasure, it brings life back to you. Freedom in knowing who you are and whose you are. For us, it wasn’t until we walked through all of our pain separately and released the outcome to God. I told God, I would wait on Him, even if that meant my husband was 90 years old. I was going to continue to TRUST his timing, not what I saw with my natural eyes (divorce proceedings, lack of care or concern, etc… ).

So let’s see what Paul was writing about in Romans 5:1-5 (NLT)

1 Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace[a] with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. 2 Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory. 3 We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. 4 And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. 5 And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.

Paul says it is a privilege to STAND. Paul tells us to look forward to sharing this journey with God. He tells us we will face problems and trials. Paul even outlines the process… MARRIAGE ISSUE that leads us to a RELATIONSHIP with Christ (or a deeper relationship) and that causes the enemy to get mad at us, which leads us to develop ENDURANCE leading to a STRONGER CHARACTER which the case of marriage restoration leads us to a RESTORED MARRIAGE. So this sounds like a process to me. ??? When we have gone through every process (surrendered it all, walked in His ways and gained mighty strength in and through the process), we end up with the HOPE, that DOES NOT DISAPPOINT…. SURPRISE RESTORATION!!! ‪#‎UNCHNED‬

Choices…

I HEAR CHAINS BREAKING…
CHOICES: Do you know where you will live for eternity? Do you think… wow, this world has gotten callous? Hardhearted? Nonchalant? Nothing worse than finding out you could have been forever in the presence of God, but your new home has NO OPTIONS OTHER THAN TO BURN FOREVER. ‪‎Call‬ on ‪#‎JESUS‬, repent of your wrong doings, ask Jesus to come into your heart (and he will), accept him as your Lord and Savior, and start having a relationship with him ‪‎DAILY (discuss your hopes, fears, disappointments, regrets, failures, even the fact that there is sin in your life that you can’t seem to correct, tell Him you need His help, remind Him that He gave You your own free will and give it back to Him for the changes Your seeking), before it is too late. Don’t wait. Don’t put off for tomorrow what you can have today, which is life in eternity with Father God, Jesus His Son and The Holy Spirit! If you’ve known Him and turned away to do you, just turn back again. Don’t wish you had only listened to the WARNINGS all around you… thinking there they go again, those‪#‎Christians‬, ‪#‎HolyRollers‬, ‪#‎BibleThumpers‬, ‪#‎SuperSpiritual‬,‪#‎JesusFreaks‬, ‪#‎JudgingOthersNotGotTheirOwnLivesPerfected‬. Many of the people that are sharing about Jesus, that you don’t care for, may not have it all together completely. What they do have is:‪#‎TheHopeOfHisComing‬, ‪#‎LoveThatPassesAllKnowledge‬, ‪#‎aStartingPlace‬,‪#‎aCleanSlate‬ for God to build upon. He brings ‪#‎Love‬, ‪#‎Hope‬, ‪#‎Peace‬,‪#‎Joy‬, ‪#‎Restoration‬, ‪#‎FreshStart‬ and so much more. He is a gentleman and does not force Himself on you. It’s a choice. ‪#‎You‬ ‪#‎Decide‬ whether or not to be ‪#‎UNCHNED‬.
