EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
We are all created differently with many different parts to ourselves. In general, as a church body of believers, if we can’t get along we often blame it on being “incompatible” and just walk away. Are we incompatible when it comes to having different views if others differ from yours?
 Everyone’s views are important, are they not?
There are no irreconcilable differences when it comes to the body of Christ, it’s only the people who refuse to reconcile that have issues.
God’s word tells us “the body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ.”
(1 Corinthians 12:12)
We do have differences but we are designed by our Lord to use our differences to please Him. He created us. Paul describes this principle in 1 Corinthians 12 where each member of the church has a different role to walk out, yet they are all important to the body. We do not compromise the Word of God ever, but we do understand each other’s differences in serving.
We all function best as a team as we serve where God has called us. We need to accept differences as assets and love one another, not blame others if they are different or view things differently.
Let’s all thank God for one another wherever we are in the body of Christ and thank Him that He didn’t make any of us alike! We are stronger made up of many people with different skills and talents, than we are working alone.
Let’s ask God to show us how to celebrate one another’s uniqueness as we walk through this life here on planet earth. Remember, we will live with these believers for eternity someday in heaven, we better learn to love their individuality while we’re in the here and now.

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
God created each of us so differently. Each of us are born with a way to show love. Some of us have the ability to speak it more profoundly than others but we all understand that we can possess love.
God tells us in His Word…
“3 things will last forever- faith, hope, and love and the greatest of these is love. Let love be your highest goal!” ( 1Corinthians 13:13-14 & 14:1)
How has God asked you to express love? Do you just communicate it or do you really take the action needed to share love?
God has marked “love” as very important. It’s not something that should diminish over time. Paul says that love should be our highest goal. What is a goal?
A goal is something we strive to reach for. We all need to be daily committed to loving one another. It takes discipline and practice and is not always easy but the reward is lasting!
Pray and ask God for patience in any area you feel a struggle when it comes to loving another. Ask God to give you ways to communicate the most important thing He tells us will last forever…
❤LOVE❤

 Dios creó a cada uno de nosotros de manera tan diferente. Cada uno de nosotros nace con una forma de demostrar amor. Algunos de nosotros tenemos la capacidad de hablarlo más profundamente que otros, pero todos entendemos que podemos poseer amor.
Dios nos dice en Su Palabra …
“Tres cosas durarán para siempre: la fe, la esperanza y el amor, y la mayor de ellas es el amor. ¡Deja que el amor sea tu meta más alta!” (1Corintios 13: 13-14 y 14: 1)
¿Cómo te ha pedido Dios que expreses amor? ¿Simplemente lo comunicas o realmente tomas las medidas necesarias para compartir el amor?
Dios ha marcado el “amor” como muy importante. No es algo que deba disminuir con el tiempo. Pablo dice que el amor debe ser nuestra meta más alta. ¿Qué es una meta?
Una meta es algo que nos esforzamos por alcanzar. Todos debemos comprometernos a diario a amarnos unos a otros. Se necesita disciplina y práctica y no siempre es fácil, ¡pero la recompensa es duradera!
Ora y pídale paciencia a Dios en cualquier área en la que sientas una lucha cuando se trata de amar a otro. Pídale a Dios que te dé formas de comunicar lo más importante que Él nos dice que durará para siempre …
  ❤AMOR❤

…”Amo al Señor, porque ha oído [y ahora oye] mi voz y mis súplicas. Porque ha inclinado su oído a mí, por tanto, lo invocaré mientras viva”. (Salmo 116: 1-2) 🕊
¡Qué bendición es que tengamos un papá ABBA, que nos ama tan profunda e incondicionalmente que inclina Su oído a TODAS nuestras necesidades!
El versículo 10 nos dice que cuando decimos lo que creemos, estamos haciendo “confesiones”.
¿Podemos hacer una lista de confesiones, afirmaciones o declaraciones, que puedan ser respaldadas por la Palabra de Dios y confesarlas en voz alta sobre nuestras vidas, nuestras familias, todas nuestras situaciones diarias?
Personalmente, tuve una tormenta de infidelidades que atacó mi matrimonio. Mientras buscaba consejería bíblica, el Pastor compartió Romanos 4:17 conmigo que me decía, habla de la no existencia, en Existencia. ❤️ ️
Así que cada mañana, confesaba EN VOZ ALTA, “mi esposo me ama, mi esposo es fiel, mi esposo es un buen hombre, etc.”
Al confesar, la Palabra de Dios sobre nuestras vidas todos los días, estamos hablando de vida en nuestra situación diaria y ¡saca al diablo corriendo!
Por favor comienza tu mañana con una lista de confesiones; busca las escrituras que las respalden, escríbelas y habla la Palabra de Dios sobre tu vida. Habla Su Palabra sobre tus situaciones todos los días y observa cómo se manifiestan las promesas de Dios en cada área de tu vida. ❤️ ️
Recuerda, Su Palabra nos instruye que nuestras PALABRAS son un contenedor de Vida o Muerte ….. HABLA VIDA ❤
Que Dios envíe sus bendiciones sobre todas  nosotras🕊

…”I love the Lord, because He has heard [and now hears] my voice & my supplications. Because He has inclined His ear to me, therefore will I call upon Him as long as I live.” ( Psalm 116:1-2)🕊
What a blessing it is, that we have an ABBA Daddy, Who loves us so deeply & unconditionally that He inclines His ear to our EVERY need!
v.10 tells us that when we speak what we believe, we are making “confessions.”
May we make a list of confessions, statements or declarations, that can be backed up by the Word of God & confess them out loud over our lives, our families, all of our daily situations.
Personally, I had a storm of infidelity that attacked my marriage. While seeking biblical counseling, the Pastor shared Romans 4:17 with me which told me, speak the non-existence, into existence. ♥️
So each morning, I would confess OUT LOUD, “my husband does love me, my husband is being faithful, my husband is a good man, etc.”
By confessing, God’s Word over our lives daily, we are speaking life into our daily situation & it sends the devil running!!!
Please begin your morning with your list of confessions; look for scripture to back them up, write them down, and speak the Word of God over your life. Speak His Word over your situations daily and watch God’s promises manifest in every area of your life. ♥️
Remember, His Word instructs us that our WORDS are a container of Life or Death ….. SPEAK LIFE♥️
God’s blessings you and upon us all.🕊

Whose voice are you listening to?
Are you listening to God’s voice, the enemy’s lies, or other people’s opinions and thoughts, maybe it’s the news, social media…? We are all listening to something.
Words have power so we need to make certain that we are listening to the right voices, voices that lift us and encourage and build us up. Not voices that tear us down, point out every fault, or those that make us feel “not good enough” or “condemn” us. This is not God’s way.
We need to watch our words and not allow the wrong words entrance to our thoughts. Especially those that don’t belong to us.
Personally, I struggled in this area. I needed to change my pattern since I spent much of my life feeling “not good enough.”  I chose to take on other people’s thoughts and opinions of me. I clearly wasn’t listening to God’s voice.
God created me, He created you.  He knows us even better than we know ourselves.
 Psalm 139:14 declares that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made.”
Numerous voices grapple for our attention and especially now with social media. We need to learn to drown out the wrong voices and listen to the One who has our best choices in mind! The One who speaks and breathes life into us. Our Father in heaven.
People can put labels on us, or we can do it to ourselves too! “I’ll never be like that, I can’t do that” etc! No! I hear God saying:
“Take the labels off!” Those negative words are not what I say about you. I created you, I know every detail about your life.
 (Psalm 139)
You are who I say you are – you are a Daughter of the King, you are My child and I love you.
 I lavish My love upon you (1 John 3:1) you belong to me and I have every good and perfect gift for you (James 1:17). You can do ALL things through Christ (Philippians 4:13).
Take off the labels and put on My armour that equips you for every day and supplies you with all you need to succeed. Stop looking to others and look to Me. Do not let what others have said or have done to you, stop you from walking in the destiny I have created for you. I have a special purpose just for you. I have plans for you (Jeremiah 29:11-14).
You will not fail with me because I know what you need and at the right time I will provide.
I hear God say, “Dig deep into My Word, spend time in My presence so I can shower My love upon you and show you what you need to know.”
 You won’t see or know everything because that’s where faith comes in – take those steps and don’t let fear or what others have said or have done stop the call on your life. God calls you His precious beautiful daughter. He created you for such a time as this. Stand firm on the truth of His Word and start taking off the labels that others have put on you. Walk in the truth of Whose you are because you are  His and He won’t ever leave you or forsake you. You can trust God!
Step out in faith (Hebrews 11:1) walk in your destiny! Don’t allow fear to stop you.
Take off labels and put on your God-given identity as a royal daughter walking in freedom. Please know how precious and beautiful you are! You are a world changer, a gift to this world! Be uniquely you, the way God created you, and shine brightly as He created you this way, His beloved daughter. 💜👑

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
We are emotional beings and God created us in His image to be so.
God gave us emotions so we could grow, mature, be fulfilled, and experience enjoyment. Our feelings were made to be our friends.
Often times I rely on my emotions and sometimes they get in the way, especially when they escalate out of control. Thankfully, and because of the wisdom God has given to me,  He quickly reigns me back in.
When we experience negative emotions, it is usually telling us something needs attention. Stop for a moment and understand there is a reason. Figure out the problem before it escalates out of control. Take constructive action toward it and you will see the emotion served its purpose at that moment.
Jesus displayed emotions. Think about how He compassionately healed the man with the shriveled hand. ( Mark 3:5) The Pharisees were zeroed in on the fact He healed on the Sabbath, breaking their laws. Jesus’ anger and sorrow over their action was totally appropriate reflecting our Father’s own heart. Wisdom from God directed Him in the moment.
Please ask God to give you wisdom over dealing with your emotions before the action occurs. He will help you with whatever it is.
“Let every person  be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to anger…” (James 1:19)

EMPODERANDO VIDAS CON UN PROPÓSITO:
Somos seres emocionales y Dios nos creó a Su imagen para serlo.
Dios nos dio emociones para que pudiéramos crecer, madurar y sentirnos satisfechos y experimentar el gozo. Nuestros sentimientos fueron hechos para ser nuestros amigos.
Muchas veces confío en mi emoción y a veces, se interpone en el camino de la sabiduría que Dios me ha dado, pero gracias a Dios, Él rápidamente vuelve a reinar en mi.
Experimentamos emociones negativas y esto nos dice que algo necesita atención. Deténgase un momento y comprenda que hay una razón. Averigüe el problema antes de que se salga de control. Tome una acción constructiva y verá que la emoción cumplió su propósito.
Jesús mostró emociones. Piense en cómo sanó con compasión al hombre de la mano seca. (Marcos 3: 5) Los fariseos se concentraron en el hecho de que Él sanó en sábado, rompiendo sus leyes. La ira y el dolor de Jesús por su acción fue totalmente apropiado para reflejar el corazón de nuestro Padre.
Pídele a Dios que te dé sabiduría para lidiar con tus emociones antes de que ocurra la acción. Él te ayudará con lo que sea.
“Todo hombre sea pronto para escuchar, lento para hablar y lento para la ira …” (Santiago 1:19)

EMPODERANDO  VIDAS CON UN PROPÓSITO:
Este mes tuve el privilegio de visitar las montañas de Tennessee. Tuve la capacidad de orar en el balcón trasero de la casa de troncos de Rhinehardt Bunky. Me cautivó el esplendor y la belleza de Dios en la impresionante vista de Su creación. Lloré, ore. No había ningún escondite del espíritu de Dios en ese lugar.
 Rhinehardt Bunky fue un evangelista mundial, autor y una enorme estatura de fe. Conocer a un hombre de Dios que dirigió a millones a la cruz de Cristo en todo el mundo y había compartido tiempo con Dios allí, me llevó a una quietud que difícilmente puedo describir. La foto de abajo es donde me senté.
“¿A dónde podría huir de Tu Espíritu? … si voy a los cielos, Tú estás allí. Si hago mi cama en las profundidades, Tú estás allí. Si me levanto sobre las alas del amanecer, si me poso en lo lejano”. lado del mar, aun allí tu mano me guiará, tu diestra me asirá (Salmo 139: 7-10).
Hay algo sobre un lugar de paz que genera ser abierto, honesto y vulnerable y prepara la mesa para que el Espíritu de Dios se mueva de una manera poderosa.
Solo en la tranquilidad de esa montaña, oré. Nunca saldrá de mi corazón.❤
Busca un lugar que traiga paz a tu Espíritu y simplemente descansa allí un poco. Observa lo que Dios habla en ese momento.

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
This month I had the ability to visit the mountains of Tennessee. I had the privilege to pray on the back balcony of Reinhard Bonnke’s log home where this “legacy of a Soul Winner”, famous evangelist and Author to millions and millions of people, prayed.
 I was captivated by God’s splendor and beauty in the awe-inspiring view of His creation. I cried, I prayed. There was no hiding from the Spirit of God in that place. I was captivated with majestic inspiration through the vast ranges of earth’s top peaks and its low valleys.  The magnificent certainty of Who God is and what He created was before my eyes.
As for Reinhard Bonnke, he was a masterpiece creation himself, a worldwide evangelist, Author, and tremendous stature of faith. Knowing a man of God who directed millions to the cross of Christ through his worldwide dedicated calling had shared time with God there, right in that place of space. ( He passed a little over a year ago)
It just brought me into a stillness I can hardly describe. A moment in time that stood still for me. The photo below is where I sat at his home.
“Where can I go from Your Spirit?… if I go to the heavens, You are there. If I make my bed in the depths, You are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there Your hand will guide me, Your right hand will hold me fast.” (Psalm 139:7-10)
There is something about a place of peace that brings about being raw and honest and also vulnerable and it sets the table for the Spirit of God to move in a powerful way.
Alone in the quietness of that mountain, I prayed. It will never leave my heart.❤
Could you find a place that brings peace to your Spirit and just sit and rest there for a bit? I encourage you to try. See what God speaks in that moment of stillness.
