Your Next Step

Friendly Tip: You Will Be Strengthened and Lifted Up!


Yes, I am back and thank you for welcoming me back. It has been several months since I have contributed to Restored Ministries Blog. I have thought about writing because I know this is part of my ministry; but honestly I feel like the enemy has been trying his best to take me out and keep me from contributing.    




Here’s what I learned:

When you have an assignment that GOD wants you to focus on, we often become stuck in a season of planning to do it. We then move into a season of deciding to do it and right before it is time for us to move forward, sometimes we get this overwhelming sense of anxiety. Anxiety is a form of fear. The enemy wants to block us from our blessings. Instead of allowing the enemy to take me out, I write anyways, specifically- write about my experience.


This message will be for someone…

You were gifted with your baby and now you’ve succumbed to an overwhelming place of worry and fear. You are wondering what to do next. You have the solution; because I know he has told you exactly what to do. Start pressing towards your next step and often you will need to pray towards your next step. Yes, press on and pray towards your next step knowing that he is with you. What’s so amazing on the other side is that he will hold you with his strongest hand! Believe in the power of GOD and move!


Scripture Reading: Isaiah 41: 10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” 

Friendly Activity: Make a list of two things that have been on your heart. Next to each item, make note of what you know you’ve been called to do in that area. Pray and ask GOD for strength and make a move. Trust me, he will help you, let us know of the results.


May you find rest in the Lord!


Good Night Friend!

Lereca Monik – Ms. Texas America 2016 

I am up way past my bedtime and am just too over joyed to sleep.  Many of you that follow our blog know Lereca Monik as one of our bloggers for the past two years- but tonight she was the 2nd runner up on her journey to the crown for Ms. America 2016.

Lereca represented Texas well! 

She was stunning with her signature big beautiful smile! 

I was so excited when she made it to the top 12! 

Over the moon when she was awarded The Spirit of America Award.

Just look at her beauty radiate! 

Then she made the top 5! 

And I just about chewed off all my nails and was holding my breath so hard when she made the top 3.

Oh! look at our angel in white!

Lereca finished as 2nd runner up.

That is no small accomplishment!
We can’t be more proud of her!

She still wears a glorious crown that her Daddy God has reserved special just for her.  

We are believing and praying for great big things for her future!
