Courage means you get back up again after you’ve been knocked down.
Courage means you face your fears and move past them.
Courage means you stand up and remain confident in the face of your bullies.
Jesus was the King of Courage and He lives inside of you!
Refuse to let your enemy kick dirt in your eyes or spew lies in your ears.
YOU are a child of the Most High God.
You are someone heaven knows.
YOU are profoundly important to the greater Kingdom story.
So rise up, wrap yourself up in courage, and face your day.
God is with you! ~ Fenich Jerry
Worthy Thought: We should always be motivated by love and compassion.
“An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest.
Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had the child stand beside him.
Then he said to them, “Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For he who is least among you all he is the greatest.”

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:” -Ecclesiastes 3:1 NIV
In life, seasons come and they pass. Some are memorable and some are painful. We don’t get to choose when or how they will transpire. We only get to choose how we will participate in them.
~ Baring His Beauty,
I know many of My son’s and daughter’s
are battle weary
Many are ready to throw in the towel
This has been a season of endless
challenges and trials for many
They feel defeated and drained
Everywhere they turn
the enemy is turning on the heat
And all they can do is watch
how their lives are spinning out of control
One moment everything still fine
The next moment everything falls apart
I see you standing with a finished puzzle
in your hand
The next moment it falls
to the ground
Pieces scattered everywhere
You fall to the ground trying
to collect the pieces
Then you realize that it’s going to take you
forever to put everything back together
You look up, defeated and lost
For its a reminder of your life
Spinning out of control
You hanging on by a thread
That’s how many feel at this moment
Your life feels scattered
All over the place
Your mind is racing
Trying to think of solutions
It feels like nothing will ever work out
Like there is no way out of all the challenges
That is choking the life out of you
Hold on to Me my child
I know you feel like hiding
You feel so alone
My voice has become quiet
You think I have left you
to fend for yourself
I am always with you
Even in your darkest hour
When your pain overtakes
every part of you
And you feel like your heart will never run free
I am working on your behalf behind the scenes
Making everything beautiful
in My time
I will come through for you
Like I always have
In this last stretch I would
want you to hide in Me
Focus on My plans and purposes for you
Focus on My dreams and promises
Know that I am true to My word
I will steady your heart and mind
As you seek My face
Don’t fight your battle’s in your flesh
Rest while I fight for you
For it’s not by might ,nor by power,
but by My Spirit
Let faith be your anchor
While I strengthen every
weak place in you
Look back over your life
I was always there to carry you through
every trying time
Why would I leave you now?
You are on My schedule and
We are right on time!
Soon you will marvel as every piece
of your puzzle will fall into place
You will taste My goodness
As it is payback time!
Every area of your life where the enemy
thought he had the upper hand
Will experience divine breakthrough
I am accelerating you into
every dream I have for you
Hold fast dear one
Let no one steal your focus
My anointing will destroy every yoke.
~ Ebigale Wilson
Hold On My Child
The world tells us to grab a drink, grab a person for casual comforts, that will make it all better. In this popular secular song it is asking for someone to help them out; Now!
Someone is already here! Jesus!
It is in His Blood to overcome all fear anxiousness and loneliness.. plus so much more.
It isn’t in our blood to give up because when we are in Christ – Romans 8:37 says we are more than conquerors and Overcomers.
~ XXOO Michelle
Enjoy this catchy song and turn it into your worship song today!

i want to be in the heavenly places
in the here,
in the now,
i want to see your kingdom come
in the midst of all the chaos,
i want people to see and know You
for who You really are,
not for what they might think You are
cause You are much more than thoughts could fathom,
more than words can describe;
You are greater than anything here on earth
nothing even comes close to You
cause You are God;
You look down at us from Your throne
and love us for where we’re at,
You never abandon us when we fall
but help us back to our feet
and to fight in victory
from all that’s trying to destroy us
cause with You, we are stronger
than in our own strength;
With You, we will rise,
in every single moment
we are in the heavenly places
cause You are with us and we are with You.
~ Bethany Anne
