EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
There is POWER in praying God’s Word. We all need to remember this when we are in the middle of a battle.
Sometimes we can’t see straight when we are praying and in the midst of what is happening before our eyes,  a ferocious fire that blazes.
One thing you and I can hold on to is the fact that the words we raise to heaven in prayer are weapons on warfare. There is so much POWER in your words to heaven.
As I cry out to my God when painful moments hit me hard, I recite scripture! I say it right back to God! Often times my husband will hold me tight and pray scripture out loud back to our Father together. Strength in numbers. They are His words of warfare for us to cling to and fight battles with and “wow, is it comforting in the midst.”
“God, in Your  Word, The Bible, You say Your Word is “living and active.”  Sharper than any double-edged sword, it even penetrates to divide soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart” ( Hebrews 4:12)
May we each carry the sword of the Spirit, the word of God” because it pierces everything it touches. Say scripture out loud. Pray His Word and tap into His power!
God promises things will happen when you battle the enemy by the POWER of the word of God. I emphasize this boldly sisters, “declare the Word of God in your prayers and wield a powerful weapon against which no enemy can prevail…the Word of God.”

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
Every day is a day we can call God our friend. We can go to His Word and see that His scripture backs up what we know about God as our friend.
Having a good friendship with God provides a healthy release for us. We can have intimacy with our Lord and know it is good. We see this in examples as God made Abraham His friend and it was a very good thing.
In 2 Chronicles 20:7, God gave the land to Abraham, His friend.
Isaiah 41:8, God calls Abraham His friend.
“But you, O Israel, my servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, you descendants of Abraham my friend”
And in James 2:23, because Abraham believed, he was called God’s friend.
You that have believed have been given an inheritance.  You are God’s chosen friend. You can be assured that the Father who loves you is there for you as your friend.
Please turn to the best friend you can ever hope for, Jesus who is your friend.
Friendship is a two-way street. Communicate with your Friend Jesus consistently.  Let your Friend know that you love Him. Let Him into your inner space because you trust Him. He is the only One you could cast all your cares upon.
Why?
“…Because He cares for you! (1 Peter 5:7)
Take your friend with you throughout this bright and beautiful day, you’ll be so glad that you did.

Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
The Rock is the LORD JESUS CHRIST, and He is that same Rock yesterday, today, and forever, He does not change.
1 Corinthians 10:4; Psalm 89:26 Hebrews 13:8.
Good Morning,
I was sitting here and just talking to my Daddy Jesus, when He gently said “Tell My people to go to the Rock of their salvation and meet Me there.”
Today, no matter what promises you face, the Bible assures us that you can depend on God. You can turn to Him when you are tired or weary, afraid or confused.
He is your Rock!
There are countless numbers of people who are wounded and bruised today.  Some of the wounds are visible and physical.
 Many of us are carrying scars and bruises that may not be seen on the outside. Some are carrying the scars of guilt and shame on the inside because of past sins and failures. Others have been deceived and lied to by those they should have been able to trust.
What becomes of all children who are neglected, abused, and forsaken?
Many become
1) Politicians
2) Priests & preachers
3) Lawyers  — (I was in the state’s custody when I was found at 10 years old..before I had to go on the witness stand against my abuser)…the state had a lawyer appointed that had to question me about my 5 years of being abandoned, kidnapped from my home and what did he do to me?
The lawyer began doing the same things to me that the kidnapper did.
4) Bankers
5) “Experts” (so-called, of any type… and I’m not saying all lawyers are bad-I thank God for all the ones that know Jesus as Lord and have a heart for their clients. The same for the others on the list above.
You may have been bruised and wounded and even
left for dead by others, maybe even some that have jobs that are on this list. Many of them are broken and wounded themselves.
 You may be down, but you are definitely not out! Through all the turmoil and trouble you may be experiencing right now, the Good Shepherd stands ready to anoint you with His healing, soothing oil of gladness!
Each of us needs to step back from the clutter and clamor of the crowd and take a big dose of the LORD’S healing oil.
Let’s continue going to the Rock of our Salvation and trust Him for our joy. . . The joy of the Lord is our strength. And because the best is yet to come!
Yes, let’s stand under the ”big dose of God’s healing oil in Jesus’ Name!”
Blessings,
Dana

EMPODERANDO VIDAS CON PROPÓSITO:
Escritora invitada: Laurie Sammarco, Pembroke Pines, Florida.
“Y la constancia debe llevar a feliz término la obra, para que sean perfectos e íntegros, sin que les falte nada.”
‭‭Santiago‬ ‭1:4‬ ‭NVI‬‬
A menudo nos preguntamos “¿Me está escuchando Jesús? ¿Por qué estoy pasando por tales pruebas? ¿No es suficiente creer?”
 ¡No, no es!
 Jesús quiere más de ti; todas ustedes y si es necesario orar día y noche y buscar Su rostro sin cesar, que así sea. El Padre no necesita probarnos nada. Él demostró cuánto nos ama cuando lo dejó todo en la cruz y murió por nuestros pecados. Jesús murió para que tengamos vida y vivamos en abundancia a través de Su gracia.
Las pruebas no terminarán, pero cuando hayamos madurado en Cristo, siendo hechos a Su imagen y hechos justos, podemos ser sanados por Sus llagas. Solo entonces podremos ver nuestras pruebas de manera diferente y verlas como nuestro testimonio de habernos acercado más al Señor.
Dios te ha equipado con todo lo que necesitas para sostener tu vida y mostrar a los demás que eres una fuerza a tener en cuenta. Te paras con la fuerza de Dios, lista para luchar y reprender cualquier cosa que venga en tu contra y luego puedes convertirte en ese campo de fuerza.
 Cuando sienta que Dios no está haciendo nada para aliviar su situación, pregúntese qué está haciendo para acercarse a Él.
 Jesús quiere más de lo que le das. No te conformes con nada menos de lo que Dios quiere para ti. Él quiere darte todo. ¡No te rindas! Ora ferviente y sinceramente como Dios dice que lo hagas.
Se te puede dar lo que te falta en tu fe (1 Tesalonicenses 3:10) Dios te dará lo que te falta, cuando vienes a Él buscando nada más que Su presencia y tu deseo de estar más cerca de Él.

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
Guest writer: Laurie Sammarco, Pembroke Pines,  Fl.
James 1:4 (NIV)
“Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”
We often wonder “Is Jesus hearing me? Why am I going through such trials? Is it not enough to believe?”
No, it’s not!
 Jesus wants more of you; all of you and if it takes praying day and night and seeking His face without ceasing then let it be so. The Father doesn’t need to prove anything to us. He proved how much He loves us when He left it all on the cross and died for our sins. Jesus died so that we may have life and live in abundance through His grace.
The trials will not end, but when we’ve matured in Christ, being made in His image and made righteous, we can be healed by His stripes. Only then can we look at our trials differently and see them as our testimony in having grown closer to the Lord.
God has equipped you with all you need to sustain your life and to show others you are a force to be reckoned with. You stand with God’s strength, ready to battle and rebuke anything that comes against you, and then you can become that forcefield.
 When you feel God isn’t doing anything to relieve your circumstance, ask yourself what are you doing to draw closer to Him?
 Jesus wants more than what you are giving. Don’t settle for anything less than what God intends for you.  He wants to give you everything. Don’t give up! Pray fervently and earnestly as God says to do so.
You can be given what is lacking in your faith (1 Thessalonians 3:10) God will give you what you lack, when you come to Him seeking nothing but His presence and your desire to be closer to Him.

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
At this point in our lives, it would be safe to say many of us have had to prepare for some kind of test. Tests consist of many different kinds. There are  written tests, physical agility tests, memory tests and then there are faced tests which some of us have had to prepare for-they are called “life tests.”
I can say for a fact I know several of you right now are preparing for battle and challenges that are awaiting you in the very near future with so-called “life tests.” My heart’s prayer is that you go through these great tests with a strong and prepared heart.
Wisdom from Proverbs says,” The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the Lord.” (Proverbs 21:31)
This scripture affirms the principle clearly…
“For the Lord your God is the One who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory” ( Deuteronomy 20:4)
Paul in the Bible tells us that even when we face death, thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Cor. 15:56-57)
Ladies, to build a ministry, to study for school, to work, to do art and create, and even when praying for others, we must master our skill in all of it. To conquer a mountain we need to make certain we have the necessary tools and that we build our strength up to climb and conquer it.
We are all more than conquerors through our Lord and Savior,  Jesus Christ. God gives us that reassurance through His Word. May God prepare your heart with inspiration to face your test, whatever is coming toward you now or whatever storm you may be in so that you get the victory for it. We are praying for you at Women World Leaders. In our Lord Jesus is the victory.
If you are reading this and need prayer, know that another sister who is also reading this will pray for you.
In Jesus’ Name.

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
Do you want your life to shine for God’s glory? God wants us to worship Him in spirit and in truth. We may not always understand it because His ways are not our ways. He wants His glory to permeate our entire being. His instruction to us is true and He shows us how to worship Him.
The glory of God is indescribable and when we do things in our flesh to allow God to receive full glory, we are worshipping Him and honoring Him.
God is sovereign over every aspect of your life, He wants you to trust Him. He wants to see you through every situation each and every day with joy. This requires obedience.
Please don’t follow Him by habit or by duty or you will miss the boat.
God’s word says,
“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8-9)
God is the master planner, worship Him the way He desires in spirit and in truth and your life will shine for His glory.

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:

Just when we think God may not be there hearing our prayers, He answers. He always answers. He’s the God of unlimited resources.  His capacity to bless us is unlimited.
We live in a world of supply and demand and it’s oftentimes difficult to wait on our Father for things we want.  In “His time” is not in “our time” and we need to patiently wait on Him no matter what it might be.
Even though you may see poverty all around you or right now some of the things you feel you need are necessary, they may seem scarce, but God has you and will never let you go. He wants you to have faith to receive His goodness.
I sometimes long for God to answer my needs the way I want them answered- right away, but I’ve learned over time that sometimes no answer is my answer. I’ve learned He is the God of plenty who holds nothing back from me or the ones He loves. I’ve learned there could be a reason I don’t receive what I’ve asked for and now I’ve learned to be content with that answer. I’ve learned to surrender everything and anything to God, He has full decision-making in my life and gives me the wisdom to understand it. He’ll give wisdom to any of us who ask Him for it…James 1:5
We must learn to live by faith and not by sight, knowing He is a God who owns the mansions on a thousand hills. He knows what you are asking and He hears you. Be patient dear one, you have access to as much of God as you desire.  He is there all the time.
“For we live by believing and not by seeing.”
(2 Corinthians 5:7)

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
Running around being busy is the new state of living for so many people. Are you living busy or are you living abundantly?
Being in ministry, I pay close attention to fellow Christ-followers. I can notice a difference between those living abundant full lives and those who live “busy” lives. (I wrote a coaching book on this, Fuel For Life… Abundant Living Through Daily Coaching)
I have tendencies to be one of those busy people but I can catch myself when this happens and abide back in the presence of Jesus as I get my priorities straight.
The abundant lives are full of fruit and full of the Spirit. They are joy-filled, faith-filled, and full of love no matter what happens around them. That is who I want to be and strive to be.
 Those who are busy are usually rushing, racing, and oftentimes stressing about everything because they don’t have enough time. I do not want to be this person, nor do I want to complain about being this person. These types of people who are chaotic and busy are not usually connected to the power source. They are too busy.
I can relate to the latter but I am now so conscientious of my way of living and want to live in the presence of my King and if I get too chaotic then  I bring it before God and ask Him for help where and when I need it.
 Before it gets out of hand, by asking for God’s guidance, this will eventually bring you back to the abundant living lifestyle you need but obedience to Jesus and His Word is necessary.
We need to tap into God Himself for strength. We can find that through prayer and reading the Word. We need to prioritize time with Him in His presence. Know your limitations and don’t exceed them because you are not superwoman. You are a daughter of God and He wants you to live the abundant life He has called you to live with joy unspeakable.
You are a vessel God delights to fill but how can He fill you if you are spilling out the stress, toils, and turmoil of a hectic life all over the place?
The divine supply He wants to fill you with is in His presence when you are abiding in Him. It’s there you’ll find the abundance of His powerfully at work in your life. God can do the impossible through you one grace step at a time. Slow down and fill up with Jesus. Awaken your heart to the joy of Jesus and don’t miss the life of faith.
“Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches.” (John 15:4-5)
Amen to God’s truth.

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
Miracles are extraordinary but we must be available with our eyes wide open to see the biggest miracle of all, or we may miss that miracle in our life.
Miracles are everywhere. The book of John in the Bible is full of miracles. Water became wine, blind eyes were blessed with sight. Even the dead rose to walk again when Jesus lived among men.
Every miracle we’ve heard of in the Bible makes us wonder about the power of our God. How can He move mountains?, but He does, do you believe it?
 Nothing in the world can be compared to the Miracles of Jesus first hand but God gives us hope for our own miracle in that when we follow Him wholeheartedly, He IS the miracle worker.
 I can claim this as truth in my own life because just last week it happened to me yet again. God allowed me to see a mighty miracle because I asked Him for it. I asked Him for years and although the miracle wasn’t exactly as I thought it might happen, some of the things I specifically prayed for to happen did. They were revealed to me, just as I had prayed. God gave me the “glimmer of hope” I had asked Him for the day before it happened. If I hadn’t asked, would I have recognized it as it played out? Maybe yes, but maybe not. The amazing news is that it was in my prayer heart and not only did I see it, but so did many others.
Jesus went on to do many more miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples,  which are not even included in the book of John. But all that is recorded is so that you will fully believe that Jesus is the Anointed One, the Son of God and that through your faith in him you will experience eternal life by the power of his name! (John 20:30-31)
So many Miracles come out of the book of John in the Bible but people must have faith and grow their faith in Jesus to see the true miracle of all. That miracle is the fact that we can have eternal life through Jesus Christ by the POWER of His Name! What an amazing miracle THAT is! Eternal life through Jesus Christ.
John 3:16, can you recite it?
