EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
You are beautiful and most precious in God’s sight. He loves you and adores you. He created you intricately. He knows the hair count on your head. He made you in His image. He gifted you with strengths.
There is someone whose objectives are to erase your beauty, attack your happiness, your marriage, your home, your children and he wants to rob your peace. He wants to utterly destroy you.
How do you defeat him?
Bind him!
Jesus said it takes two in agreement to take dominion.
“And I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven” (Matthew 16:19)
We each have the power to do two things God tells us. Bind on earth or to lose on earth.
We can partner with God to exercise this power and action in heaven. When we bind the devil on earth, God binds him in heaven, He tells us this in scripture.
Don’t allow the devil loose in your home, your affairs, your body, or your life. Don’t give him the ability to harm what God has done for you or what He’s about to do in you. BIND the devil in JESUS NAME and send him back to hell where he belongs!
Mention the name of JESUS and watch the power you have to bind the enemy who is coming against you. The attack will be unleashed.
I just mention the name of Jesus with authority whenever I need to and I pray against the principalities of darkness in this world and then I  have faith that Jesus hears it. Because He does!!! Jesus gave me the authority to do just that. I  mention His Name whenever I need to and He’s right there! And where He is, the devil can NOT be!
There is POWER in the name of Jesus dear sisters.
Is God the Lord of your life? If He is you must act like it, walk like it and talk like it, and call it out on earth so that God could do it for you in heaven.
Am I sick of the enemy? Can you tell?
I Believe it with the authority God gives me to do something about it!
You need to believe through the mighty Name of our Savior Jesus that He gives YOU the authority to do something about it too!
Amen.
It’s powerful. It works. You have not because you ask not. The power is available, turn it loose!

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
There is a difference between cautious behavior and worry. Despite their similarity, worry is not the same thing as being cautious or careful.
We ought to be concerned about many things in our life but worry is not one of them: locking up our homes is important to prevent intruders while we are away, managing money wisely is being careful, being alert when driving on the edge of a mountain road is caution.
Caution, concern, and care are necessary but worry goes beyond these and fear of what we can’t control. Worry goes on and on beyond the precautions.
Worry leads to anxiety. You can’t be anxious unless you started worrying about it first. When we feel anxious, we can be certain we are no longer being careful; we are worrying. What does God say about this act?
When we cross the line from being careful to being anxious, we have turned our focus from God and His provision and we are depending on ourselves.
Don’t buy into the lie that worrying helps you. Worry destroys your joy!
As long as we are seeking first the kingdom of God, we can’t worry. Do you realize the certainty of kingdom provision is what led the apostle Paul to write this verse:
“Don’t worry about anything,  but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known to God. And the PEACE of God, which surpasses all understanding, will GUARD your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7)
Dwell on this verse when you are consistently worried or anxious about a situation. God’s word brings results.

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
The whole business of judging persons is in God’s hands, for He alone knows the secrets of our hearts.
When we are consciously praying for someone standing firmly in the kingdom of God, people are more receptive to listen to you and also listen to what you have to say versus casting judgment quickly in any way toward another without knowing a situation.
When we are walking in God’s kingdom, we can live in union together a little easier. Your sisters’ struggle would be kind of you to become your struggle. You can show love to her by letting her know she is not alone. Send an encouraging text or email or even a card in the mail. Reaching out to help with any storm is very calming to another.
Our persistent prayer over a person and their situation is not a lack of faith in what God can do because some changes just happen slowly. God tells us to pray without ceasing. Pray for everyone.
God can provide guidance and perspective that we do not have on our own for our brothers and sisters. We are co-laboring with God if we earnestly pray for a sister in need versus casting judgment over her life if we see matters going wrong.
“In everything do to others as you would have them do to you; for this is the law and the prophets” (Matthew 7:12)
We call it the “Golden rule” keep this tucked away and remember to always look with love and compassion in your heart over judgment of “why.” Just remember how much we dislike being judged ourselves. Things happen. Remember, love them first, and always pray next.

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
GUEST WRITER:  Sara Sahm – Women World Leaders serving with purpose.
“TEACHABLE MOMENTS”
“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” (Proverbs 22:6) NIV
This past year I went thru a dark period of depression and anxiety.  The thoughts flooding my mind were not from God, but I did not know how to quiet them.  A sweet friend gave me a list of negative thoughts and corresponding Bible verses to fight those thoughts off.  I’d never done anything like it before, but it worked.  Not immediately, but over time I’ve begun replacing lies with the Word of God.
(Ephesians 6:11) NIV says, “Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.”
 Later in verse 17, we are told of our greatest weapon: “The sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”
I realized that no one had ever taught me how to defend myself spiritually, and I too had yet to teach my children!  It’s natural to avoid things we don’t fully understand so maybe that’s what I did.   But God knew this and gave us a manual for this temporary life. It’s said while children are little we are still the experts!
I wanted to take advantage of that and find a way to impart the concept of taking captive our thoughts and replacing them with God’s Word and teach it to my kids.  That is how this song Warrior came to be.
Recently I had the opportunity to sing it with my daughter for her class. I was so touched when she asked if I was coming in for Community Helper Week and suggested I sing a song.
Knowing most parents would be coming in to share about being a nurse, policeman, fireman etc., I felt unqualified as a stay-at-home mom to come forward with something. Her asking helped me to see that my little ministry of songwriting indeed qualified me and prompted me to go.
I got to talk with the kids about the armor of God and leave the school knowing I planted a seed.
That day of sharing was such a blessing and I almost missed it because I was afraid to be different.  Had I held back because I felt unqualified, my daughter would never have learned the life lessons I hope she did that day.
We got to sing about the Bible and lead by example and that it’s ok to talk about God.  I was able to show her that having hope in Jesus is something to be proud of and that on days we feel no hope we can find it again in His Word.  I know both my daughters have this song memorized and “ready” for when they need it. Best of all, my daughter got to experience the blessing of proclaiming God’s truth to others.
My daughters watched my battle with depression and have seen how I fought thru and how I still fight every day, it’s an ongoing battle.  As parents, we feel we should have all the answers but it’s ok to let them know that sometimes you don’t. Walk humbly with your God and lead by example.  I hope my daughters see me walking in honest humility and leaning on the Lord for all my strength because that is where strength awaits.
 It is my hope that their little eyes see a mother that leads by example, watching me in the Word of God and daily pick up my shield and sword.  It is my prayer that I can take advantage of any teachable moments so that when they find themselves face to face against the enemy, they are ready to fight like a warrior!

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
How often do our own thoughts and words point to what “we” do more than what “Jesus” has already done? Our deeds are like a rug; a place to go face down- that we may offer up our actions in ourselves to the living God.
 But if we try to stand on those deeds for any kind of merit or attention, that nasty enemy will pull the rug right out from under our feet. I’m not certain how you feel but to me- I’d rather willingly bow down in honor to God than get knocked down while honoring myself.
To last long and to finish strong, we must remember and believe with all our hearts that we can possess and produce no good thing apart from God.
 “All of us have become like one who is unclean,  and all our righteous acts  are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away.” (Isaiah 64:6) NIV
Scripture tells us everything. We are nothing without Christ and our righteous acts are comparable to filthy rags.
May God wash us clean through Jesus Christ as we seek to serve Him in all we do for His glory, not ours.

Someone who is relentless wants your children and he’ll take them any way he can get them and please be on the lookout and on guard!! Satan appears with drugs, alcohol, addictions, and even bitterness, grief, and unforgiveness as he attacks our loved ones.
The good news is we have a weapon to fight back with on their behalf. We need to stop complaining, stop the fear, and get in the battle which is raging right this moment. The time is now!
We are more than conquerors with the ammunition God provides! He knows what we are up against. He sees it all.
If your child has a problem in these areas or other areas not mentioned,  we know it’s an attack of the enemy. You must stand up with confidence, knowing who you are in the Lord, and gain back your child for Christ!
You have POWER and AUTHORITY. Satan does not!
Rebuke his lies and deception by the power invested in you through Jesus Christ our Savior. He is Lord over EVERYTHING in your life, including YOUR CHILD! Go to battle. You may even see attacks happening on your very young children, not just the older ones. Evil lurks everywhere and attacks happen all around us. Be on guard.
Put on your armor princess warrior. Ephesians 6:11-13
Get on your belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, feet with the readiness of the gospel of peace, shield of faith, helmet of salvation, sword of the Spirit, the Word of God, and get in the battle. Fight hard. Pray in the spirit, God tells us to! (Vs 18 )
You have POWER, get after it and use it. Your children need you, in Jesus’ name they need you!
Go to battle on their behalf. Be a voice!

We have a treat for you today you will not want to miss!
Our Woman World Leader from the United Kingdom,
Donna Clare is in the performing arts and has a passion to serve and a desire to give people hope. She did this monologue for us of the Woman Caught in Adultery from (John 7:53-8:11) and it’s wonderful.
God has given her different biblical characters to speak of and has shown her how to captivate her audience by sharing different verbal stories, hoping to bring encouragement,  hope, and a relevance of the Bible today.
She has remained close to the biblical account for accuracy and at the end, she gives a story to encourage you a bit. It’s about 3 minutes long, just click on the box below and you can close your eyes and listen. It’s beautifully done and in Donna’s sweet English accent which we are confident will bless you. Donna says you can put yourself into this woman’s place and let it take you on a journey with the Woman Caught in Adultery.
Thank you Donna for sharing in this awesome way so that we can hear this story come alive today.

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
 Why is it that some people never seem to grow in relationship with the Lord? We watch their life with eager anticipation of a blossoming with Him, but somehow there is barely evidence or it slowly comes to fruition. Unfortunately in some, we may not see evidence of any Jesus in someone we have longed to see walk with Christ.
People seem to go from one catastrophe to the next, never able to get beyond just trying to survive. The sad point is they do it alone when they could be walking with the most powerful person ever, our Lord and Savior.
 Why is it that people lack joy in their life not having a relationship with the Father? Doesn’t everyone desire it? Why do they lack spiritual breakthroughs or even a deeper communication with God is the question? I used to be one of those people. There are so many who just can not seem to find time for God or the beautiful purpose that He has waiting for them. It’s heartbreaking.
I believe the answer lies in the word “surrender”. I was privileged to speak on “how” to surrender at a women’s conference at a church in Northern Florida a couple of years ago. I had the joy of sharing how my life completely turned around when I honored the word and “surrendered” fully to God.
 It was a blessing to have many women who were moved by the message and came to me afterward to talk about this in relation to their own lives. I saw the need to talk about it was strong. “Ah-ha” moments were surfacing!
 When I put obedient action into my repentive heart many years ago,  I walked forward in faith, surrendering EVERYTHING to my God! It’s something I encourage everyone to do.
 The word obedience is a “key” word. Making Jesus Lord over your life and no longer yourself, is something that requires making a choice. Surrender to the Savior is life-changing.
 Surrender and surrendering “everything” means being willing to say “Lord, whatever you want me to do, I’ll do it.” I’m no longer my own or a slave to sin, I’m a child of God and free to live as one, and I needed to behave as one also.
 We need to die to ourselves and give up the things of the flesh that once controlled us. Putting God first and submitting to His rulership will make ALL the difference in your life.
” Why do you call me, ‘Lord, ‘Lord,  And do not do what I say? I will show you what he is like who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice.”
(Luke 6:46-47)
“For it is God who works in you to will and to act according to His good purpose.” ( Philippians 2:13)
Wow, can we all understand that it’s through “obedience” we will get to the closer and closer relationship we long for with our Lord? The  “surrender” will have God working in our lives for His greater purpose and that is something we can all shout an amen to.
If we can do this in our own lives, and not worry about others as much, it will happen for you and it will happen for anyone desiring to have a relationship with God. It’s a personal choice to surrender and commit to obedience. Pray for the others you love to have the same.
