Marvelous Monday Motivation! Thank You God. I Remember!

God I Remember JoaynnRepeat after me, “God I won’t forget what you’ve done. I thank you for everything. I remember!” When I’m going through what may seem like the impossible, or even in times when things are going great, I will make “God I Remember,” my declaration.

God I remember when there was lack, insufficient funds, no food to eat or clothes on my back or shoes on my feet. You supplied all my needs. I remember infirmities in my body, sick, riveting with pain. By your stripes I am healed.

God I remember when the enemy came to destroy me you vindicated me. No weapon formed against me. God I remember when my burdens were heavy, my yoke was not easy, and my cares were cast upon you you gave me rest. For your yoke is easy and your burden is light. You rescued me in distress.

God I remember when I was in trouble, you saved me. You thought enough of me to send your only Son to die for me. God I remember you and all you’ve done and are doing because you love me.

God, I will never forget you. By faith, I will always remember you.

Think about all the things God has done for you. Remember the things he brought you through. Praise God. He remembers you. He will never forget you. Today is a brand new day. His mercies are brand new every day. No matter what happens, forget the negative and focus on the positive.

Say to yourself, “God I remember!”

Be blessed! – JD

God Shifted Some Things In Your Favor To Get You Where You Are. Don’t Regret Change. You Couldn’t Remain the Same Person

God I Thank You JoaynnWhen you are in transition and your breakthrough is getting close, you can tell because you’re not your usual self. You get easily aggravated. You may feel helpless. Things that never use to irritate you will and people who never mattered to you matter.

Don’t let it discourage you. God is shifting you. When it seems like you are at your worst, God sends a miracle. A ram in the bush with provision. Praise and worship God. Keep your mind stayed on Jesus.

Before you could get to where God was taking you some things had to change. You couldn’t get to where you are by staying the same person. Thank God for molding you into the person you now are from who you used to be. You couldn’t remain the same person. God shaped you to prepare you for your destiny.

Say this with me, God I thank you for molding me into who I am from who I used to be because had it not been for who I was I wouldn’t be who I am today.

Be blessed! – JD

I May Have Been Through The Storm, But I Made It. I Got A Feeling Next Year is Going To Be AMAZING!

wpid-img_20141229_085324.jpgThis year has been by far one of the most challenging, difficult, uncomfortable yet defining moments of my life that I’ve had in a long time. Nonetheless, I’m grateful.

So many things have happened that left me confused and conflicted. But something changed in the midst of going through it. My walk and my relationship with God deepened. I came to know him more intimately. My faith grew. I had a dream and vision. I stepped out on faith believing God for blessings and miracles! (BAM) I believe something amazing is about to happen.

When I kept going to God in prayer for answers, even though I didn’t understand any of it, he revealed to me his promises. He told me exactly what I needed to know to help me move forward. When he showed me his perspective, it propelled me that much more to walk in my purpose.

No matter how much I tried and wanted to stop doing what I know God called me to do, he refused to give up on me. At times when I wanted to turn back the hands of time to go back to what I thought was comfortable and easy, He wouldn’t let me. I may have gone through some things and many times wanted to give up. But every time I would go through something, I was reminded why I’m a Christian.

When I gave my life to God, in every circumstance I encountered in my life, I realized I couldn’t go back to who I once was. My heart just wouldn’t let me be who I once was. When faced with insurmountable obstacles, it didn’t matter how much I tried to dredge up the old me, I didn’t feel comfortable trying to be the old me. I guess that means I’m growing.

God is always working me. And will use me no matter where he sends me. Regardless of the circumstance, when I sit and take a moment to reflect not on my situation but on how good God has been to me, I begin to think about what I must do to bring him glory.

Know this, while situations may be heartbreaking, discouraging, and sometimes can bring you to the point of death, every day you rise and see the sun shine is God saying, “Don’t fret. I’m not through with you yet. You’ve been through worse. Have I ever failed you? This too shall pass. I’m always with you.”

For everything that has a beginning and an end, there is a purpose. We must be cognizant of God’s presence in any situation to understand, He will fulfill his purpose. When trials come, know that they are to be expected. God has a master plan. Be willing and able. Expect the unexpected.

In the most difficult situation, don’t look to the right or to the left. Look to God. He is a present help. Yes, it will take some time to heal when you suffer and go through, but don’t stay stuck in your misery only to keep suffering. Give everything to God. Let him handle it. Nothing’s too hard for God.

What doesn’t kill you will make you stronger, wiser, better. Don’t live with regrets only to miss your blessing. Yes, we’re human and sometimes the flesh will rise up causing us to feel defeated and lost. We can either learn from the experience or choose to stay stuck. Time heal all wounds. Take time to heal. But don’t live bound forever in your refusal to truly heal.

Ask God to give you strength to get through whatever may be troubling you. Go to God. He will fix it for you. People may hurt you but when you know what you know about God, there’s nothing man can do to you to stop him from fulfilling his purpose. God is a heart fixer, mind regulator, a doctor in the sick room. He’s a healer, no matter what ails you. No matter the circumstance, stand! Stand on the Word of God. Put everything in his hands. Life is worth living when you live for God.

I love the Lord! No matter how many times I may fail him, I know I’m loved. I am a work in progress. There’s no turning back. Whatever I go through, I know God got my back.

The enemy may come in like a flood but God will lift up a standard against him. The devil thought he won. Ha! Look at me. I’m still standing! I may have been through the storm, but I made it. I got a feeling next year is going to be AMAZING!!

Be blessed! -JD

Ephesians 1:11-14 In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, 12 so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory. 13 In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, 14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.

God, I Appreciate You

Spent some time in deep conversation with God sharing my sincere gratitude for the things he’s doing in my life. Thankful for every experience.

The journey I’ve traveled in the last few years hasn’t been easy but was necessary. I didn’t understand it then, but I do now. God I thank you.

Times of sorrow consumed me as I cried out in agony only to see God’s reveal in each experience as preparation of the promise to fulfill his purpose.

God restored me. Even when I couldn’t see his plan for me. I’m better. I’m stronger. I’m wiser. I may not be what Im supposed to be but glad I’m not what I used to be.

My relationship with God has changed. Humility is part of my daily regime. My soul is free. I’m slowly becoming the person he declared I’ll be.

All I’ve been through was part of God’s plan. To refine the person He says I am. Thank you God for perfecting me. I won’t take for granted the life you’ve given me.

I’ll run and not walk in humility. To fulfill the assignment you’re prepared for me. I’m thankful. Words can’t explain. I praise your Holy name. Thank you Jesus! I love you Lord!
