Peace Be Still Storm. It’s Your Season. Call Forth Your Harvest!

Seedtime Harvest JoaynnThe blessings in the WEIGHT of glory far exceed problems you may face and will manifest in abundance, as long as you don’t get weary in well-doing while you WAIT. God promise. Be encouraged.

Oftentimes life’s circumstances will weigh you down heavily, not knowing which way to turn. You lose sight of the wonderful promises of God when looking at your situation, feeling hopeless convinced nothing will work in your favor.

We serve a mighty God who will never leave us or forsake us. He’s able to do far more than we could ever think. He knows exactly what we need at the right time we need it. He’s an on time God. And will do just as he promise.

The devil is a thief. He’s a liar. It’s his job to kill, steal and destroy. He works 24/7. And never gives up. Why should you? Get to work! The thief comes in the night to steal your joy. Don’t let him rob you of what you know is from God. The joy you have the world didn’t give it to you. God did. Rebuke that spirit!

Obstacles will come. Opposition will roll its ugly head in your direction to distract you from God’s intended purpose. Press towards the mark. You’re made for this! You can do it.

Storms may come. God is the eye of your storm, and will calm it to a whisper (Psalm 107:29). Listen for that still, small voice. There’s great comfort in knowing God is faithful. Jesus uttered the words, “Peace, be still” (Mark 4:39). The winds and waves obeyed. Ain’t that good news! Just as Jesus was in control of the storm, He is in control of your circumstances. Declare, the storm is over!

Scatter the Word of God on the hearts of people wherever you go. Spread the seed and watch God show up and show out. It’s seedtime. Call forth your harvest. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over. It’s on the way. Get ready! Overflow, favor, increase. Declare and decree, “All three are alright with me!”

When the perils of life weigh you down, look to God. It ain’t over until he says it’s over. He promise. Decree, you will have life and life more abundantly. Walk boldly into your destiny. –Selah

Be blessed! – JD

Galatians 6:9 “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” (ESV)

Say This With Me, I Declare And Decree I Will Walk In The Fullness of God’s Blessings!

Declare and Decree JoaynnNot everybody will celebrate you. There are some who may not even like you. They don’t matter. Learn to celebrate yourself. You matter! While it may be refreshing to know that somebody cares, even when they don’t, learn to celebrate yourself.

When looking over my life today, I couldn’t help but give thanks to God. I declared I have so much to be thankful for. I may not have all the things I want or am where I want to be but I thank God for all I have and where I am. It’s exactly where God needs me to be.

When it comes to my life and matters that are dear to me, I am a very private person and try my best to keep my personal life to myself. Everybody do not need to know when I’m helpless. But for the people that want to get in my business only to persecute, condemn, and judge me, I turn off the noise. I don’t tell them a thing. Because everybody don’t need to know my business. I take it to God. He’s the only one that needs to know all about my troubles.

Be careful of people who talk about you and not to you. Do what you know is best for you. Gossipers will talk behind your back. They want to see you fail. Don’t tell everybody your secrets. Keep your business to yourself.

Don’t let life get you down. It won’t always be like this. Believe God for miracles and blessings. Speak prosperity over your life. Don’t give up. Name and claim it. Be encouraged. Anything easy is not worth having but anything hard to get will be well worth the wait. Persevere. Keep trusting Him.

Say this with me….Declare and decree whatever I touch shall prosper. No weapon formed against me shall prosper. Who the son sets free is free indeed. What God has planned, it will succeed. I have the favor of God on me. Grace looks good on me. I wear it well. I can do all things through Christ Jesus. I am more than a conqueror. It won’t always be like this. I will walk in the fullness of God’s blessings. I will win at this!

Be blessed! – JD

Job 22:28, 29 “You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you; And light will shine on your ways. When you are cast down, you will speak with confidence, And the humble person He will save.” (NASB)

Welcome to Monday! It’s Going to be A Great Day. Go Get Your Blessing!

wpid-img_20150124_075712.jpgToday I want to encourage you. Here are a few words of inspiration to take with you. You may be wandering in wilderness and it feels like it has been forever. Count it all joy. Rise up and be counted.

You may go through the trial and never understand the test but when the teacher is silent, study the word and listen, to pass the test.

Take note of what God says in his Word. Live it, breathe it, do what it says. Don’t let your circumstances dictate your destiny. Walk in victory.

God wants to take you from Egypt to the “promised land”. Get up! Say to yourself, “Every day I will do something.” To propel me to reach my destiny. What God has for me is for me. No man can curse what God has blessed. Now get up and go get your blessing!

Be blessed! -JD

Ephesians 3:14-19For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” (ESV)

Come to God with Audacious Faith! Pray Audaciously!

Pray with Audacious Faith!There’s power in the name of Jesus to break every chain.
No matter what you’re going through God can make you whole again.
God will break every chain!

Faith without works is dead. Have saving faith. Pray with audacious faith.
Come to Jesus Christ. Believe in Him. Be obedient. Commit yourself to Him.
God says he will do it. Trust in Him.

Declare to the world what God has done for you.
Testify of his goodness and how he brought you through.
Your situation may have looked hopeless.
God placed your feet on solid ground.
No matter what you were facing, God turned it around!

It’s good to be afflicted, even when it may seem difficult to get through.
God knows best. He removes things that are not good for you.
The devil will keep coming but he doesn’t have any power over you.
Whatever he thinks he stole, God will restore all things back to you.

Pray audaciously. Yield to God’s authority.
Don’t be afraid to ask God for anything. He has all authority.
Be strong. Be bold in your faith.
Come to God with audacious faith! Pray audaciously!

Be blessed! -JD

James 2:19 “You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder!”

Be Encouraged!

The Triumphant Christ Forgiving Repentant Sinn...

The Triumphant Christ Forgiving Repentant Sinners, Painting by Johann Bockhorst (1604-1688) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

A triumphant life is a reflection of the storms you’ve been through. No matter what man tried to do to you. God’s grace brought you through.

We may never know what a person has been through by looking on the outside. Only God knows what’s on the inside.

Never judge a book by its cover. We may look all put together. And not have two nickels to rub together. Outer appearances aren’t designed to reveal God’s glory in the struggle.

God will humble the proud and exalt the humble. He shows favor to the humble (Matt 23:12). When you put yourself in a dangerous place and fall from grace, submit. Humble yourself by faith.

Your present does not dictate your past. You are designed for greatness. Let go of the past. God knows all the struggles and hurts you have been through. God cares and loves you. For your faithfulness, God will reward you.

Rejoice! Don’t fret. God’s not through with you yet. He is Alpha and Omega. He is the beginning and the end. What God starts, he finishes. He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion. For every trial, God sends it for a reason.

Be encouraged! What you see is not the end. God has begun a good work in you and will complete it to the end. Trust Him.

Be blessed! -JD

Numbers 23:19 “God is not a man that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?” (ESV)

Designed for Greatness

This is a poem my youngest daughter wrote in the wee hours of the morning today and sent to me for inspiration. Letting me know God designed me for greatness.

I couldn’t help but share. You are designed for greatness. I hope it will inspire you as well.

  Designed for Greatness

You are a great creature
Designed for great things
You were created in His image
So why wouldn’t you be?

His love for you is infinite
And although this you cannot see
He shows you every day
By giving you chances to be

Dreams, hopes, and aspirations
Is what he has for you
But he cannot do all the work
Your part you must contribute

You are a great creature
Designed for many things
Born with all the same
But living in different ways

The playing ground is even
Although some wouldn’t say the same
Contrary to belief, his plan for you is clear
Almost at the finish line, do not stop here

Happy National Girlfriends Day!

Celebrate the many connections you’ve made with women around the world in honor of this day. There are many who may have influenced your life for the better not just today but on any given day.

Then there are friends who are a source of inspiration that are there for you whenever. And will have your back when you meet with storms in times of trouble and stormy weather.

Appreciate those who motivate and celebrate you in spite of you. Show love even to those who don’t celebrate you because in spite of, they need love too. There are even ones who work to empower you in their commitment and dedication. And will be a source of support to help you reach your fullest potential that you may arrive safely to your destination.

Today is not a day to honor just one person, but many. Cherish long-lasting or short-lived friendships that bind you together as women. In some way we all have managed to form a circle of trust to enrich the lives of one another. We’ve changed the world in the sharing of love and knowledge for the betterment of all our sisters and brothers.

Godly connections are most valuable too. Wise counsel, sound advice from true girlfriends will speak truth in love and won’t ever say things to hurt you. But instead will build you up with words of inspiration and encouragement to guide you. They will support you even when you make mistakes. The respect you will have for one another. What a difference it will make.

What comes out of their mouth sometimes can be for your own good. Even when you don’t want to hear it, they will speak out of love. They will listen to understand and will speak to be understood. And will agree to disagree for the sake of sisterhood. They will love you, flaws and all, and will be there for you. To pick you up or catch you when you fall because they care about you.

Quality, sincere friendships are hard to come by and can take a long time to develop. When nurtured, lasting friendships and strong connections will last forever.

Spend some quality time with all the special women friends in your circle of trust. Find a way to connect who those who may be separated by distance. It is a must. Spend some quality phone time. Make a special call to let them know you’re thinking of them today. Call even if it’s to briefly say “I love you,” from miles away.

Remember the lives of girlfriends or friends you may have lost and loved ones who have passed away. Cherish their memory when thinking of happy times and the many things you may have shared on this day.

And now I will leave you with these words as I say, Happy National Girlfriends Day!

Girl power is in full effect! In honor of National Girlfriends Day, women across the world are now calling all mentors, world changers, those who persevered, triumphed, and paved the way. And we mustn’t forget to show love for our “best-est” BFF girlfriends today.

Make today special. Share a kind word or gesture. Be thankful for your “best friend, girlfriend,” circle of trust friends, and special connections. Call; send a text; or an Instagram; or an email; power up Skype to commemorate today’s special event. Let this be a new day of new beginnings. Make new friends. Relinquish grudges, bitterness, or resentment.

Make godly connections. Share with others one of your favorite expressions. You don’t know how much it will mean in the life of someone who may be hurting or could be going through. Send virtual hugs. Make a difference.  Live in the overflow of God’s love. Let your light shine through.

In honor of this special day, I am sending lots of huge hugs and warm kisses to my closest and dearest BFFs, girlfriends, sister friends who are near and far away. I may not be in your presence physically or daily, but I am here in spirit and love each of you dearly not just today but every day. I salute you and wish you a very happy National Girlfriends Day!

Be blessed! -JD

Don’t Get Weary In Well-Doing

wpid-img_20140405_084231.jpgGood morning! Here are a few words of inspiration for you today.

Be still and Let God have his way. In all your doings, give honor and praise unto him. With your words, glorify and magnify Him. What you treasure on earth, so will your heart be set. “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Matt 6:21)

Isaiah 40:28 – 31 “Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the LORD, The Creator of the ends of the earth, Neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. 29 He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength. 30 Even the youths shall faint and not be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall, 31 But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles. They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.”

Don’t get weary in well-doing. We serve a mighty God. For, in due season you shall reap a harvest. God is Sovereign. Don’t give in. Don’t miss your blessing.

God knows things we are in need of before we ask. Thank God in advance. For what he’s doing, what he’s done and what he will do. He’ll cover you.

Be blessed! -JD

Ruth 2:12 “The LORD recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the LORD God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust.” (KJV)
