How To Handle Hurts

Feeling unheard and unappreciated, shunned and shushed…

The deep chasm seems too wide and divided to every be bridged again by common ground.

The endless need to always be right when everything is wrong.

Half-hearted attempts falling as flat as the air that has become thick and stagnant sucking the very life out of you.

What do you do when you have been hurt to the core?

You can rehearse the hurts or release them.

You can let those that mistreat you defeat you; OR you can gather yourself and your tears and take them to the Only One that can rightfully do anything with the dings that have assaulted your heart and soul.

The Only One that will remove the hardness from your heart and hopefully theirs too… and fully redeem and restore.

He keeps every tear you shed in a bottle.
Why does He capture them?

I believe it’s so He can turn those same tears into the refreshing and watering and deep cleansing our very heart and soul needs to fully forgive and release all the hurts.

Stand and let the Lord fight for you.

The Only One that never hurts or disappoints is God.

Exhale and free yourself from it all.

Then take a deep breathe in and inhale the freshness of a reset and restart to your heart.

Feel His Mighty Spirit that promises to be our strength when we feel weak fill up all those crevices that the dings of hurt created.

He is faithful! You Can Trust Him!

An Unbeatable Hand

Sunday night I had a moment when interceding and praying for many things that I kept saying over and over …
The Enemy Keeps Over Playing His Hand! I am mad and fed up with this Lord.”

Then instantly I heard the Lord speak to my heart; “I have The Royal Flush Michelle.”

I laughed and said “Ok Lord – I Trust You… but can we please flush all this foolery going on right now.”

As God usually does – He instructed me to get up and start writing down His download…..

I wrote down 👇🏻

The enemy does not have the winning hand.

It just seems like he is winning and overplaying his hand right now.

Oh’ he is good at deceiving – he has a staunch poker face.

But he is only bluffing…

The Lord’s “Royal Flush” is fixing to declare Game Over!


As I researched the next day to see what is a Royal Flush exactly … this is what I found 👇🏻

A Royal Flush is 5 cards in perfect alignment. — A,K,Q,J,10

A royal flush is an unbeatable hand.

In true God Wink fashion yesterday I happened to glance at the clock or my phone at 12:34, 1:23, 2:34, and 4:56.

So, I knew that this was God confirming His “Royal Flush Alignment” Download.

The simple takeaway folks ….

That’s how we win this battle of good vs evil people.

We align with God; His Word and His Ways.

We keep calling out that punk the enemy because he is only bluffing.
No matter what news he throws at you… he is only bluffing … he doesn’t have, nor will he ever have the winning hand.

God Wins!
And God always has the Royal Flush!

Pray this prayer with me peeps:👇🏻

Lord, we align with Your Truth.
We align our hearts to You
and Your Perfect Love.
We come out of agreement with unbelief, hate, offenses, lies and fear.
Lord, flush out the evil agendas in our land. Flip the tables.
Every riot shall now become a great revival.
Destroy all sick plots and schemes.
Every dark assignment must bow down now at Your feet.
Remove the hate.
Reduce Your people to love.
Shake and shift the atmosphere.
Reclaim and realign peoples hearts back to You. Supernaturally stop and block whatever is set to cause harm and disrupt Perfect Peace.
Force the enemy to show his cards so Your people will not buy his lies anymore.
We declare a Royal Flush has been laid down by You.
The winning hand is Always Yours.
We come into perfect alignment with You Lord.
We align all our choices to Your Word and Your Ways.
Forgive us.
Heal our land.
Heal our bodies and our minds.
Heal our hearts and our homes.
Heal our communities and our country.
In Jesus’ Mighty Name. Amen!

Don’t Cry For Me

You kept quiet 

You never said a word 

Don’t tell me you didn’t see 

the pain in my eyes

When your words would 

pierce my heart 

Didn’t you recognize one 

of your many demons you 

chose to ignore 

Following me like a cloud

Oh how you spoiled me

Gave me everything I wanted

Yet my real needs were 

never met

All I needed was to hear that 

you are sorry for the part you 

played in my pain

You had high expectations 

of me, but not of yourself

With your mask on your face

you masked your scars

Played the part of a 

perfect parent 

Was it too hard to search 

your heart?

To admit that you never 

dealt with your past?

Was it so hard to face the 

demons tearing us apart?

You should have known 

you were passing it on

You should have known

I would wear your scars

This dark cloud following 

me would take me to 

places I hated to be

The cutting, the drugs, 

wrong friends would

numb the pain for a while 

Then reality would hit me like 

a ton of bricks

I am alive 

Yet not seen

Seems like every demon 

terrorizes me

Like a yoke on my neck

I am carrying that which 

you ran from

They say I have this illness 

They say I have that illness 

They say I am a lost case 

All these labels they put

on me

I say all I needed was a 

listening ear

One present, healthy 

parent who put me first

Who believed in me

If only you would deal with 

your demons

I’ll just do what you did

Bury my head in the sand

Let pride take me on journeys  

I was never intended to be on

It was never about me

Always about you

Your pride was worth far 

more than my pain

Don’t cry for me.

— Ebigale Wilson

Don’t Cry For Me

The Journey

The Dry Empty Places

The key to watering those dry places – and filling up the emptiest of places…

Grab ahold of this Promise!

“Then Yahweh will answer you when you pray.

When you cry out for help, He will say I am here.

If you banish every form of oppression, the scornful accusations, and vicious slander, and if you offer yourselves in compassion for the hungry and relieve those in misery, then your dawning light will rise in the darkness and your gloom will turn into noonday splendor!

Yahweh will guide you where to go and what to do.

He will fill you with refreshment even when you are in a dry, difficult place.

He will continually restore strength to you, so you will flourish like a well-watered garden and like an ever flowing, trustworthy spring of blessing.

Your people rebuild long-deserted ruins, building anew on foundations laid long before you.

You will be known as Repairers of the Cities and Restorers of Communities.”

Your Healing Hour

Time To Be Excused

I had a friend – a really close friend that I talked to and saw almost daily. We did life together for over 10 years.

She liked to gossip and talk about others.

Hey, I am not saying I was perfect because I was guilty and engaged in it too.

Sometimes, we all can still get into tricky waters and tread back into those familiar foolish things.

God started to deal with me and I remember as He began to answer that daily prayer I pray – “Nothing Hidden Stays Hidden – reveal my true friends Lord”; My eyes were opened and I would get a glimpse of some alarming things.

She and her friends would talk horrible things about their other friends and people in general. Friends they claimed they had done life with for 20+ years and I would think…Yikes! How horrible! – I hope she doesn’t say things about me like that. Sadly, she was and more and many times it came back to me.

I knew God was pinging my heart for what grieved His and I couldn’t keep sitting quietly by or even keep participating in these behaviors.

He also was opening my eyes and trying to move that relationship away but I refused to listen and clung to it; tightly; desperately; foolishly; like a pair of old Blue Jeans from High School you think you will wear again some day.

Well, she dumped me over 3 years ago on my birthday in public like a bad scene out of the real housewives of NW Houston!

She didn’t want to be my friend anymore. Her exact words! Plus a whole bunch more in a very crowded lunch spot.

It hurt like hell – I ain’t gonna lie.

But God! He worked it all out for my good. Even better than I could hope, think or ask. He also healed my heart and taught me many valuable lessons during that time. I still pray for her and her family and her friends today.

God knew she couldn’t go where He was calling me and He no longer wanted me to sit at tables with anyone that continued to do this. Because He didn’t want me to do this.

I am diligent to not allow anyone to cause discord or gossip within our Divine Connections group. I am quick to repent when I feel I cross the line and get into any conversation that turns towards gossip or speaking less than what is pure and lovely.

I hope and pray you all have the courage to leave the tables of this foolery and mess too.

Be better versions of yourself.

Be better women and friends …

and this is for all the guys too.

Surround yourself with those that sharpen and bring out the best in you and ultimately in others too.

When you know your true worth you will stop entertaining and allowing anything that cheapens you.

This is a great quick article to read!
