Surrounded by Favor… #Arise

one loving heart“Can anything separate us from Christ’s love?

Does is mean He no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death?


As it is written:  “For your sake we face death all day long; we re considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”

No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.”

For I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us fro God’s love.  Neither death nor life, neither angles nor demons , neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love….

nothing in all creation will ever be able  to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 8: 35- 39

Nothing you have been through… or will go through…   can, or will separate you from the love God has already bestowed over your life and heart.

Nothing has been unseen or unnoticed by His eyes.  From the moment you were born, He chose you.  He covered you, and He blessed you.

You are fully.  100 percent sealed by His grace… Now and forever.

That’s why dwelling on failures, or living in sadness useless…

He chose you in spite of all the messes and mess ups…

Not because we deserved it…

But because of His great plan…

“For by grace you have been saved, through faith and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.  Not by works, so that no one can boast.  For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

Ephesians 2: 8-11

The past is gone.  Covered by grace.

The present is moment by moment… Covered by grace.

Your future is awaiting… Already covered by grace.

Your choices are awaiting…and flowing with grace…

When God chose you.  He chose you with purpose.  He chose you with joy…

He knew you needed Him, and He knew you would love Him…

So today, is a good day to start relying on His favor.

To stop living in worry, or fear.

He is using your life.  Right where you are.

Each day is a new day to let Him cover your heart with His healing and grace…

Cause He wants you to trust Him.  Love Him.  And live for Him :)

When your tempted to look away…  Remember the victory has already been won.

You have been redeemed for now and forever…

Favor is yours :)

“For He said to Moses, I will show mercy to anyone I choose, and I will show compassion to anyone I choose.”

Romans 9:15

And He chose YOU.

The day that you saw God’s love, was the day He removed the veil from your eyes…

“But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 

So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord.”

2 Corinthians 3: 16-18

So… Reflect the glory of the Lord…


Live and Love!

That is all :)


How great is your love that captured my heart and changed my life.

You chose me… You set me free.

May my days shine of such goodness, and my nights be covered with peace…

To live in Your favor is a choice… And I chose to live covered by grace.

I chose Your favor.  Not because I deserve it, but because it sets me free to be all that you want me to be…

I am Your’s.

And that is exciting…

May Your grace and love flow freely through my veins…

Use my days, Oh Lord, to comfort and encourage…

May other’s see your redemption and freedom…

May they want to know your love.

For by Your grace I live and move.

Your freedom over me is Your heart’s desire..

And I cling to YOU!

I love You.

In Jesus Name,


Live in Love,

It Does Exsit… In Christ’s love alone… #Arise

i am homesickIt does exist…

And it’s in Christ’s love  alone… :)

“For in Him we live and move and have our being…”

Acts 17:28

Walking in rhythm, surrounded by His love.

Our souls are drawn to hope and light…

In His shelter we have our being…

Our true self is in the beauty of how He sees us…

He sees your worthiness… Your beauty…  and your faith…

He knows you better than you know yourself.

When we seek Him.

We are complete….

God doesn’t call us to something, or somewhere, he calls us to Himself, and from there we live and move and have our being….

Live abundantly in His wholeness…

And stay attached to His side..

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are you ways my ways, “declares the Lord.” As the heavens as higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts..”

Isiah 55:8-9

So, take comfort that you will never have it all figured out…

He never meant for us to… His ways are not our ways…

“Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your path straight…”

Proverbs 3:5

You are right where you are supposed to be…

Live in Love :)


Forgive me Father, when I try to control things that I am not meant to touch…

Surrendering is a on going truth I need to apply every day.

Your ways aren’t my ways, gives me strength.

I would way rather trust you in the unknown, then let chaos overshelm my heart, and suppress my hope…

You are my hope, and my light…

May my love for You be my passion…

May Your love be my guide…

I love you Jesus,

In Your name,

I pray,


Live in Love,



There You Go… #Arise

lower your expectations“So my dear brothers and sisters be strong and steady, always enthusiastic about the Lord’s work, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.”

1 Corinthians 15:58

Pray over your day…

Pray over your people…

Commit your day to God’s work right where you are.  Be patient.  Be humble.  Be true to God’s love over you…

“And so, Lord, where do I put my hope?”

My only hope is in you!”

Psalm 39:7

Every little thing you do in love is an overflow of God’s goodness and mercies…

He fills you with Himself, so you can be about His work…

And His work is always love…

So, dear friends, don’t expect anything in return… that’s not love.

Love is free…

It an an extension of God’s sweet grace, and a blessing to all you touch.

You just keep growing in grace… overflowing in love.  And let God handle the rest.

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail.

They are new every morning.

Great is Your faithfulness..”

Lamentations 3:22-24

Dear Heavenly Father,

How I praise and honor Your name… The overflow of a surrendered heart is love.

Thank You for narrowing our paths that we would see no other way…

Surrendering to Your care and mercy fills my life with hope… freedom and

great reliance.

You are my life line.

May I continue to grow in trust for all that You are…

May my eyes see You in others pain…

May my love be free…

That my life would glorify thy…

I love You,


In Your Name,

I pray,


Live in Love,





The Shelter of His Wings… The Warmth of His heart… #Arise

wordStaying focused on God’s heart is our best defense.

No matter what you are going through, His plan for you is freedom and hope…

Learning to listen to His voice of love is always the way.

Giving your self the freedom to interrupt darkness with grace is the foundation of living in His light, and loving in His eyes…

God pours His grace over your thoughts… over your plans, your dreams, ambitions and failures…

His loving touch releases self condemnation, and unleashes goodness in every way.

Be gentle to yourself…

If you wouldn’t say it to a friend, don’t say it to yourself yourself :)

God uses words of love, tenderness, and encouragement no matter what is going on, let His love will guide your thoughts, and set you free…

Be good to yourself.

Be good to others…

“You are for people and animals alike, O Lord.

How precious is your unfailing love, O God!

All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of your wings.

You feed them from the abundance of your own house, letting them drink from

your rivers of delight.

For you are the fountain of life by which we see…”

Psalm 36:6-9

Heavenly Father,

How calming it is to hand you the reigns…

When life doesn’t make sense, I am eased by the splendor of Your love…

You care for animals and humans, your cover us all with the shelter of your wings, and the warmth of your heart.

Your brilliance is our shield… You are the fountain of life by which we see…

I will rest in Your beauty that covers me.

I will let Your words of love be my comfort and strength.

No overthinking… just let things be.

You are in control.

Your love is my very soul…

I will give you my day, and let love live.

I Love you, Jesus,

In Your name,

I pray,


Live in Love,



He Loves you in the Morning… and In the Afternoon… #Arise

i love you in the morningHappy Sunday…

Be still in God’s love, and confident in His direction.

You’re doing great right where you are.

“The steps of the Godly are directed by the Lord.

He delights in every detail of their lives.

Though they stumble, they will not fall.

For the Lord holds them by the hand…”

Psalm 37:23-24

He delights in every detail of your life… no matter how stumbly and fumbly you feel, God has your hand, and he will carry you on…

It’s not about perfection…

It will never be.

It’s about love… and trust…

hope and strength…

He loves you in the morning and in the afternoon…

He loves you in the evening and underneath the moon…

How good is it to be loved by someone who won’t ever let go!

Live in Love,




Right Where You Are… #Arise

I chose you“I chose you.

I wanted you.

I appointed you.

I set you where you are…”

John 15:16

Where you are… Here on this earth, may never make sense…

And that’s ok…

Maybe even as it should be :)

Our lives are not our own… We were chosen, wanted, and appointed…

He set us where we are…

What greater purpose can we even desire than being loved; and called to love others right where we are…

“If not you, then who?”

I have asked myself that question so many times…

If not me, then who would love those who God has set in my life ….

God calls us to His calm.

He has purpose for you in every single day…

You are enough right where you are…

Keep His beauty in the forefront of your thoughts…

People are hurting… Searching…

Maybe it’s your kindness that changes everything…

You just never know :)

Trust God’s hand, and keep loving your people with an undying love and abundant grace…

God is using your light…

So keep shinning bright :)

Live in Love,


“I prayed to the Lord, and He answered me, freeing me from all my fears.

Those who look to Him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces…”

Psalm 34: 4

Oh, how He loves You… :)


Oh Baby It’s A Wild World… #Arise

its a wild world“The Lord hears His people when they call for help.

He rescues them from all their troubles.

The Lord is close to the broken hearted;

He rescues those who are crushed in spirit…”

Psalm 34: 17

Of that you can be sure :)

Hardships…  times of growing…  changing,  learning …consume most of our days.

Most of my life seems to be learning God’s goodness, and peace in the midst of  trials and storms…

To lean in and trust who God says He is…

Learning it’s okay to be vulnerable in His presence while opening my heart to His power and truths…

“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.”

Isaiah 41:10

I have held this promise close to my heart for 25 years…

When days seem to feel out of control… which are more than not,  this promise is my strength…my hope… my lifeline :)

I don’t have to rely on my own self anymore.. ever again!

That’s exactly why God sent His son to earth… so we don’t  have to do life alone… He saw our need, and sent our deliver…

Jesus came to set our hearts free…

To fill our lives with His great compassion… to fill our hearts with forgiveness, He came to give us hope upon hope upon hope!

His strength and love are forever…

Be assured, Dear Friend…

This too shall pass,  seasons will change, and God’s hand of faithfulness and love will forever be your strength…

It’s definitely a wild world! :)

Love the ones your with.


Live in Love,
