Deep Within Her

Darkness has moved in

It feels like it has become

her dwelling place

She feels so defeated

She does not know

if she can go on

Will her heart be able to take another knock?

On and on it goes

It never stops

The heat gets turned up

Higher and higher

The enemy always ready

with another blow

She is so tired

Her body aches

She wishes she could escape

Dissappear for a while

Warfare was worse this time around

How can she still stand

When around every corner

a demon stands

Ready to take her out

Her body tense

She has no fight left

Giving up looks so appealing

She closes her eyes

Transported to a place

she chose not to be at

It would be so easy to make

this place her resting place

To forget all her fears

The unending struggles

To just let go for once

Give darkness a chance

Papa’s voice deep within 

would not let her give up

You are stronger than you think dear one

Just breath, you know I believe in you

The enemy knows your future

That is why he will do everything

to keep you bound to your pain

Keep your eyes on My promises

The time of release is here

Hold on with all your might

Don’t retreat!

Stand your ground!

Soon you will look back

and understand why

the attacks were so severe

Deep within, her fight came forth

She opens her eyes

A gentle smile

now covers her face

For a mere moment the enemy

thought he had control

Papa always shows up

when she thinks she is alone

He takes us to oceans deep

Where He has full control

Where we have no option

but to let go

Out in the open seas

We lean into Him

While we face our fears

Till He becomes our rest

Our perfect peace

Warriors don’t give up

They don’t retreat

They hold on

with all their might

Bruised and battered

Crushed to the ground

They always get up!

Giving up…

Oh no they won’t!

Their strength is perfected

on the battlefield

Their faith gets wings

while they still bleed

Looking back

the growth is evident

Battles had its purposes

You are no longer weak

A warrior was birthed

She will take her place

Next to her King

She will rule

She will reign

It is time for the battlefield

to release every dream!

Feature Friday – Kathryn Howley

I am so excited to share my friend Kathryn Howley with you all!

Kathy told me a few weeks ago that she wanted to type up some stories for her kiddos and grandkids and I simply suggested- How about you write a book?

And so I freed up my schedule a few days the last few weeks and did what I could do to help and other friends pitched in to help edit and of course God definitely had His hand of Favor all over this endeavor.

So, just like that her stories have now birthed 2 books!

These stories are fun for the whole family and will definitely encourage you.

You can purchase a copy of them here now On Amazon

We are bringing back the #FeatureFriday series and if you are an author or artist or have a Ministry, we want to feature you!

Delicate You Are To Me

You are stronger than you think

Break loose from the chains

that want to keep you bound

Break loose from the voices

that want to silence you

Break free from the mind games

the enemy so bluntly plays

Don’t give anyone the power

to determine your future

Get your fight back!

You are not a victim to your circumstance

You are so much stronger than you think

You hold every key to your future in your hand

Your restoration and new beginning awaits

Within your surrender

You were created to taste joy

To embrace His dreams for you

Leave a legacy of faith

You are stronger than you think

For too long the enemy

played you like a puppet

Pulling the strings

While you danced to his tune

Cut the string!

Say goodbye to what was

With Papa next to you

you can face any enemy

Swim through rough seas

Face every fiery furnace

Daughter, you were born

to be free!

Shake the dust off your feet

Dance only to Papa’s heartbeat

You don’t have to face the future alone

He has been waiting

He is ready when you are

You are no longer a victim

He paid the price for His children

to taste freedom

You might feel like you don’t have strength

Too many battles already fought

Always losing

The enemy always ready

with blow after blow

You are stronger than you think

Papa believes in you

Everything you need

is found in Him

Don’t let pain determine your future

You are most fruitful

when you bleed

You have the power

to reverse every curse

Generations are bound and in pain

Because we have lost our will to fight

You’re not a quitter!

You were made to fight and to win

To take back everything stolen

We were created to rule and to reign

To walk in His favour

To swim in His oil

No demon can stop us

We won’t stop

till every promise

Is fulfilled by His hand

Change the direction of your life

It’s in your hand’s

Heaven’s already approved

your come back

You need to get up

Get your orders from Papa

For too long you dwelled in the desert

With no hope in sight

Acceleration to break forth

in every area of your life

is available

Lean into Papa

He holds the map of your breakthrough

and turnaround

He is ready to invade every broken heart

Every weak daughter

He will help to her feet

He will sing and dance over you

Till the only voice you hear

is Him leading you to waters of rest.

“Stronger Than You Think”

The Journey

Love Louder

The disciple asked the rabbi, “What can a telegraph teach us?”…..

“That you pay for every word,” answered his teacher.

If we really did have to pay for each word – would we use them more wisely? or would we definitely be going broke!

Criticism, judgements, opinions and hate seem to always be screaming in our face-but what if we learned to Love Louder?

Loving Louder sometimes is knowing when to just shut up.

Silence speaks volumes and sometimes no words are needed.

May we all be prompted when we should Zip The Lip a little more and begin to Love Louder.

Restoration Stories – Erin Stella

The picture of me in white is exactly from 3 years ago.

3 years ago, I was hurting and so lost. I was desperate for a real relationships with people and filling the void with horrible relationships.

Parties and bars, attention from men that only wanted one thing, “friends” that were only there when I was ready to shine for them.

I think I was even a little tipsy in this picture and I know I took this pic for a guy I was seeing at the time.

I was unengaged in the world around me. Fighting for a breath of fresh air. Drowning in a sea of confusion and chaos.

Fast forward to today. That doesn’t even look like me anymore. My eyes are alive. My spirit is alive. I know I have value and worth. I have true friends and I know God has the perfect man for me…and I’m happily waiting on him. Saving myself for my forever.

I know who I am. More importantly, I know who HE is. I know my savior in a way I never knew was possible.

I still have my struggles and trials and tribulations; but on the inside, I know exactly who I am. I know exactly whom I was made to be. I receive my identity from my maker, God.

Each day, I come closer and He meets me where I’m at.

I give up what I know is bad for me, knowing that God has something that is so much better than my “what if’s” and my expectations I’ve put on a person and situation.

Everyday, I say yes to believing there is more and there is better. Everyday, I make a decision to step forward. Even on the days I’m tired and I do nothing. I’m still doing something.

Everyday, I step into the presence of God and open my heart to his love.

Everyday.

Day by day.

If you know someone that is struggling, be their light. Show them some mercy and meet them where they are. Plant seeds of love and not of condemnation.
