EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
We often find ourselves in crazy circumstances which cause us to ask ourselves, how did we end up here? What do we do now?
I read something that was powerful and so full of Truth. My circumstances do not make me what I am; they merely reveal what I am.
” For your heart will always pursue what you value as your treasure.” (Matthew 6:21)
Enough to give us goosebumps, right?
Think about this, we all want change when things are bad…If your not content in your present circumstances, your not likely to be happy in another set of circumstances either. Don’t allow your present circumstances to control you. Allow them to be filtered through God because He works all things together for good.
 “My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties, see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can! For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up power within you to endure all things. And then as your endurance grows even stronger it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking.” ( James 1:2-5)
All these nuggets to assist us are in God’s Word. Cling to these scriptures, ladies. God’s Truths will never steer you wrong.

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:

Marriage is a lifetime covenant that is intended to reflect the covenant-keeping heart of God. So many of our sisters are crying out for Godly advice when it comes to their hurting relationships at home. Please display wisdom and compassion as a friend, sharing your personal advice and sharing God’s Word.
There is no marriage that God can not heal. Within marriages, there is no person or persons that God can not change.
“However, I say to you, love your enemy, bless the one who curses you, do something wonderful for the ones who hate you, and respond to the very ones who persecute you by praying for them.” (Matthew 5:44)
God will use the very rough edges of each partner in marriage to conform the other to the image of Christ.
Always refer back to God’s Word when it comes to advice…
“In the same way the church is devoted to Christ, let the wives be devoted to their husbands in everything.
And to the husbands, you are to demonstrate love for your wives with the same tender devotion that Christ demonstrated to us, His bride.
For He died for us, sacrificing Himself to make us holy and pure, cleansing us through the showering of the pure water of the Word of God.
All that He does in us, is designed to make us a mature church for his pleasure, until we become a source of praise to Him – glorious, radiant, beautiful and holy, without fault or flaw.” (Ephesians 5:24- 27)
Remember that God’s grace is sufficient to enable a woman to be faithful to her husband and to persevere in extending “Christ-like” love and forgiveness.  We should always seek to show and encourage others how much God extends grace and love through challenging times, especially in covenant relationships.
We are accountable to God for how we answer those who are hurting, family and friends alike. Please proceed with caution and include God’s Word above your own “feelings” when you offer helpful encouragement to those in a struggling covenant relationship.

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
King David announced he would add his own personal gifts to God from out of his treasures as King. He challenged others to give in the same manner. ” Wealth and honor come from You; You are the ruler of all things. In Your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all…” ( 1 Chron. 29)
Other leaders followed King David’s example and stepped up and gave. This resulted in the funding of the temple. God’s plan was accomplished.
If God is head over everything, then what better way to honor Him than giving to a purpose for His honor and glory? It’s a way to show God that you trust His faithfulness, by giving out of your abundance of God’s present faithfulness in your life. God has blessed each one of us tremendously. He gives and gives and gives. Can we outgive God? Have you even tried giving to see what He does?
When we give to God out of a praise-filled heart we show we praise Him over all He has given us. Will you trust Him and give?
We are in need of finances to continue to print and distribute “Voice of Truth magazine,” containing the gospel message of Jesus Christ, to the whole world, for FREE. Those of you who receive this magazine already see what it is, we don’t ask for money inside, we trust God to just bless others.
Knowing Voice of Truth is blessing lives for Christ and sharing hope for healing is a blessing in itself. Please help in giving to this mission with as little or as much as God puts on your heart to give each month. Will you commit to a monthly gift to help?
We need your “giving” to continue printing as costs are rising and this magazine is growing rapidly around the world.
We are trusting God to provide through His way of speaking to your heart.  We are Leaders, and we are in this mission together. Please pray and then “Donate” as God leads you. Between you and God, please be the instrumental part of what God is doing here.

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
Gossip is a sin. Selfishness is a sin. Adultery is a sin. Premarital sex is a sin. Sin is sin, we can not minimize it. Sin is hard to avoid but the confession of your sin is critical.
When we allow sin to take root in our life and it goes unconfessed, we block our communication with God.
“Your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden His face from you so that He will not hear.” ( Isaiah 59:2)
This verse got my attention as I wandered in the wilderness, far from God. It made me tremble and had made a strong impact on my life years ago. How could I ask God for things when I was in need and He wasn’t even hearing me? According to this verse, my present unconfessed sin was blocking communication and response from Him.  I needed to get rid of known sin in my life before I could move into the proper, praying relationship I so desperately needed with my Savior. ” For him who knows to do right and doesn’t do it, to him it is sin.” ( James 4:17)
Repentance took place in my heart. Repentance means to change your mind, turn and walk the other way. It is a 100° turn! Get out of temptation’s way. The need is to confess and turn from our sin. It doesn’t mean we will never sin again, it’s the intent of the heart and God sees and knows your intent. Why dabble around if you’re tempted in an area, get away from that temptation. I needed to confess mine and repent as many times as necessary to win the battle over the problem. My heart was right. It didn’t take me long with God’s help. I made things right, got out of a wrong situation, and followed after God’s heart.
God forgives EVERY time we confess. He also knows your heart and if you are truly trying to do better or just saying the words… don’t mess with God.  If you’re sorry, mean it!
“Blessed is He whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. ( Psalm 32:1)
When you turn from your sin, say to God,  “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” ( Psalm 51:10)… and He will.
You can turn things around in your life,  just like I did. Say what you mean to God and don’t think for a minute that just “saying” the words get it done,  mean it with ALL your heart. God knows the intent of the heart! I can not emphasize this enough… it’s what God looks at. “Man looks at the outward appearance, God looks at the heart.” (Proverbs 24:12, 1 Samuel 16:7)
Don’t let anything separate you from all God has for you!
(You could read my transparent life story and what true repentance is in: “Tears to Triumph”… Releasing Pain to receive God’s Restoration. Available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and of course through Womenworldleaders.com)

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
Many of us struggle with making big decisions. It could be on new jobs we take on, decisions about our children we make, or making the right choices on our health and even more. Wouldn’t it be amazing to have the presence of God guiding us like the cloud that  He so graciously provided for His children in the desert with Moses?
Even though the children of Israel had a visual reminder of guidance by God, they still struggled with following and obeying Him.
Learning to walk with God is a process. When we walk on our own, we stumble, yet when we take God’s hand He restores our confidence.  He wants us to soar high above the limitations of our circumstances dear friends. God wants us to accompany Him to places we have never been before by Trusting Him. Trust Him in your decision, even today.
God wants your undivided attention because you can’t do these things on your own.  Make your decisions with God not without Him. The path He takes you on to the right choice is not a punishment,  but a privilege. Include Him in your decision.
You will soar on eagles wings when you are deciding things with God. You do this by reading His word and praying for your answers and receiving peace in your heart with the outcome. Not fear.
God will help you carry the burden so you are not carrying it alone.
“Cast your cares on Him, He cares for you.” ( 1 Peter 5:7)
Never hesitate to take your troubles and decisions to God. He is the cloud that will constantly guide you through His Word. Thank you, Lord for filling our every question and decision, with Your love.

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
We need to build our faith each day. Faith doesn’t worry about what is going on around us, Faith looks into the face of God and says,  “OK, let’s get this done Lord.”
John Hagee.
When God starts moving in your life, He will carry you into dimensions you have never been before.  I can attest to this by by own life and wish to encourage you to move forward in your faith without doubts.
“Mountains” are the areas of difficulties that need moving in our lives, such as financial problems, joblessness, health problems, cancer, broken homes, and more, right? Great and mighty faith can pray over yourself and those you love, even if they are halfway around the world, and believe that the “mountain” will be moved in the Name of Jesus Christ! That’s having strength in your faith. Do you pray with strength?
We need to speak the words of life in our mouths. A prayer request of asking someone else to do it isn’t enough! You must believe and believe strong. SPEAK IT OUT YOURSELF and BELIEVE IT! Use the spoken word of Faith to move your “mountains.” You have FAITH when you speak it out loud and declare it! You have life or death in your tongue, based on the faith you have in the Word of God. We all want living faith. Do we believe His Word? It’s truth, whether we believe it or not ladies. Is it truth to you?
Word has power of life in your mouth if you are sure and certain of your faith and death in your mouth if you are negative.  If you confess with your mouth then believe and ask, you will receive it.  “Ask and you’ll receive”…You get nothing until you ask.  Thinking good thoughts will not do it. Your words command a decision.
“Ask, and the gift is yours. Seek, and you’ll discover. Knock, and the door will be opened for you. For every persistent one will get what he asks for. Every persistent seeker will discover what he longs for. And everyone who knocks persistently  will one day find an open door.” ( Matthew 7:7-8)
Don’t doubt God’s word.  He means what He says.
God has given to us a measure of faith. You need to know how to turn it loose… Release the authority you have in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ and believe with all your heart! Then, watch specific things get done in Jesus’ Name. They will be accomplished, sweet sister.
“With God, ALL things are possible. “( Matthew 19:26)

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
Are you facing a battle today? Do you feel that someone is wishing you harm because of jealousy, unforgiveness, or strife? It could be anything or anyone that may be opposed to you or the Almighty God within your life.
God is your deliverer.
In a moment of calm, when you could be doing a lot of other things, STOP. Praise God for bringing you through this battle. Praise Him.
The POWER of the Lord will save you, protect you and deliver you, and please give all glory to God when He does.
What are you struggling with? Are you in a battle? Do you feel as though the enemy is moving in on you?
If you are answering yes, please stop and thank God for ALL of His deliverance within your life.
Develop your own way of praise to your Lord.  Talk to Him saying, “Lord, You are worthy of ALL praise.” Tell Him, “I will worship you during these times of battle as well as times of peace.”
Then do so.
Worship Him. Thank Him for the outcome. It’s happening. Do you believe Him?
Many of you know I have been in a 4-year battle and I am claiming VICTORY! The battle has already been won, in Jesus’ Name! I praise God for the outcome. I know with All my heart, by faith, that He has won the battle for me. My faith will not be moved.
Stand strong woman of God. Your battle has already been won. Praise God for His mercies and truth and worship Him for Who He Is on your behalf! Worship Him in the battle.
“Oh Lord, I have so many enemies; so many are against me. .. but You, oh Lord, are my shield around me; You are my glory,  the One who holds my head high…Victory comes from You, O Lord. ( Psalm 3:1,3,8)

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
I used to be the queen of “what if’s ” in my life. Every time I was anxious, it usually  involved me wondering in my brain, “what if?”
“What if”, was usually something beyond my control.
In my thoughts, great pressures arose when I could not answer my own “what if” questions. We don’t have to look far to realize we are constantly falling short in our choices and behaviors. This makes any of us feel anxious and is a reason why anxiety is an epidemic in our world.
I learned that God says in His word that we are not to be anxious about anything (Phil.4:6). He tells us the solution is to pray about everything.
It took me time to form the habit of doing this but doing so brings about a peace that is beyond my comprehension. Once I had experienced the peace in my soul, I longed for more and more and I learned that God’s Word is true.
Fear and worry can hit us at any time in our minds, our emotions, and within our bodies. Even though life is filled with unpredictable things, God does not want us to live in a state of fear or worry.
At the first sign of worry, seek the peace of God. In His Word, in prayer, in praise and worship, God assures us, we will find peace there. Trust Him.
“Don’t be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with Thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the PEACE of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7)

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
Do you desire a passion for God in your life? His presence is addictive dear sisters. The more we experience Him, the more we want Him, it’s so very true.
When you truly love God and desire His presence around you, joy will rise up inside you like the most refreshing water on the hottest day ever. The joy comes from a source that never runs dry!
Being with God fills us with joy. Ask Him to be in your presence. Say the words, speak them to God in prayer.
“Lord, please be present with me today.” Praise Him and know that He hears your “ask.”
God’s ultimate goal is He wants us to know Him. We can’t fully know Him until we spend time with Him quietly.
“Be still and know that I Am God.” (Psalm 46:10)
Be in His presence and allow Him to be in yours. Have you ever been with someone who wants your advice but won’t stop talking long enough to receive it? Think about that when you come before God.
Sit in His presence. Ask Him to come next to you. Be still with Him. Rest in His presence and let everything else go while you are with God in your thoughts. Worship Him with song, worship Him with thanking Him, worship Him with arms extended toward the heaven speaking the Name of Jesus, worship Him by reciting His scriptures. Be with God alone. Watch the joy that comes overflowing into your heart. A peace that passes all understanding.

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
How many times do we wonder is God really there? Is He hearing my prayers? Am I communicating effectively what I need?
“The Lord God is with you, He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.” ( Zephaniah 3:17)
God is with you and you can take great joy in knowing He is. You always have an open line of communication with Him, whether you pray long or short prayers, He hears them all.
Thank Him for His salvation and continuing forgiveness.  He takes such great delight in you sweet friend. “He rejoices over you with singing.” I would say that our Father is proud of His children.  Let’s thank Him for His delight in us.
As He quiets us with His love,  know there is tremendous peace in that sentence. In good times and bad, He will comfort your pain.
Thank God again and again for the relationship you have with Him. Even when we don’t deserve it, His loving arms as the Father who loves us most and forgives us when we ask, is waiting to embrace us wherever we are. Always.
