Who Defines You? & Tune In Thursday #8

Who Defines You? & Tune In Thursday #8

Tweet I have a love hate relationship with social media! Can I get an amen? But seriously, when it comes to social media – I love it and I hate it. Can you relate? I know I don’t even have to mention the reasons why I hate it, but let me tell you about why I love it. I love it, is because I can connect with people from places I have met during ministry times from all around the world. I can also stay connected with family and friends who don’t live near me. I especially love the Facebook memories.  I love it because, it reminds me of events and memories that I may have forgotten. Memories like attending my kids high school events, fun spontaneous adventures, or past ministry locations and people who made an impact on me.  Even memories of quotable quotes or encouragement thoughts I captured from others.  Like this gold nugget: “God is the ONLY one who defines who I am – not my friends, my family, ministry, activities, etc. …”   #God is the ONLY one who defines who I am.Powered By the Tweet This PluginTweet This This power packed nugget came up as a memory I posted on Facebook several years ago.  I wrote it after a conversation with one of my ministry board members.  At the time, I was struggling to write the message God had put on my heart.  Not because I didn’t want to write it, but because I was afraid.  I was afraid the book wouldn’t be any good and I was afraid of what people might think about...

Hidden Treasure

Hidden Treasure

Tweet this post may contain affiliate links I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who summons you by name (Isaiah 45:3). They all stood and stared in awe of the amazing sight that lay before them.  Had they known what they were about to stumble upon, they would have been more prepared. Yet, how can you prepare yourself for something like this? The team of explorers stood at the entrance to a huge cavern filled with a sea of treasure.  There was so much more here than the natural eye could even comprehend.  How long had this place held such a treasure? A kings ransom to be sure, but why was it hidden here?  It seemed like such a waste, not just the monetary wealth that had been hidden away, but the historical as well.  No one could enjoy it, and someone must have forgotten about it, because no one knew of its existence.  The team hadn’t really been exploring anything when they stumbled upon the biggest find ever.  What lay before them was something of the movies. People just don’t find treasure like this anymore, it has all be discovered or previously uncovered, right?  I mean, who were they to find such riches as these? The King has hidden treasures stored for each of us.Powered By the Tweet This PluginTweet This As I think over this scene, I am reminded of Esther before she was chosen Queen.  There is a scene from the movie “One Night with the King” that...
Arise Warrior Princess

Arise Warrior Princess

Tweet As a youngster, I was adventurous, headstrong, and I had no fear, or so it seemed.  I would much rather be climbing trees, playing in the woods, and playing softball than playing with dolls, having tea parties, and wearing “girly” things. If I had the choice between Barbie dolls or hot wheel cars, I preferred the cars, you could drag them through the mud and send them soaring over rock piles.  They seem to rinse off and get cleaner than dolls.  Don’t get me wrong, my sister and I had Barbie’s … Barbie cars, motor-home, airplane and even a Barbie house. Yet, if my dad was working on the cars, I was there working with him.  If he was riding three-wheelers (I know I am totally dating myself), I was there too.  Growing up I was considered a tomboy, and my sister was the princess.  It didn’t really matter much to me. I just knew, I would rather climb the tree and pretend to save the world, than dress up a doll and play house. My little girl heroes were not Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella or Snow White.  I am a romantic at heart, and so of course I loved the tales and stories of these princesses.  I too dreamed and longed for my white knight, my prince, to one day come ad sweep me off my feet so I too could live in a castle.  Oh the dreams of a little girl. Truth be told, my heroes were Wonder Women and Xena Warrior Princess. I loved to watch these shows. (oh shoot, there I go again dating myself). ...
You Are A Warrior Princess Vlog #23 Lessons from the Lake

You Are A Warrior Princess Vlog #23 Lessons from the Lake

Tweet This week on the video blog, I taped on location as we were filming for our annual women’s retreat promotional video. You will notice, I look a little different, and that this weeks lesson is a lot shorter than normal. One it was freezing cold at our location as our area was experiencing extremely low temperatures these past few weeks, wearing a formal dress while beautiful, was definitely not keeping me warm enough for the temperatures.  Secondly, I am wearing my war paint, and carrying a weapon.  Check out the video to see what I am talking about…..   It is essential for us to understand who we are in Christ.  We must understand what our spiritual identity is and what the Word of God says about us. Many women either identify with being a princess or with being a warrior, when in fact, we are both. I must embrace my true identity of being a warrior princess in the Kingdom of GodPowered By the Tweet This PluginTweet This Thursday in my blog post, I will be dive deeper into the importance of embracing both our princess identity and our warrior identity.  After all, we are the Bride of Christ,and we are called to be Kingdom Warriors. The Bride of Christ is called to be Kingdom Warriors.Powered By the Tweet This PluginTweet This   Don’t forget to enter the FREE giveaway below by using Rafflecopter … and enter for your chance to win a copy.

God makes beautiful things out of us.Powered By the Tweet This PluginTweet This God has been showing me, how He takes us, our situations and circumstances … those things we see as messy and not so beautiful and He makes them new.  He makes them beautiful.   No matter the messes we have made, or are happening in our life, there is nothing that God can’t make new. God makes all things NEW!Powered By the Tweet This PluginTweet This We need to allow God to breathe upon the not so pretty things in our life.  As He does, His pneuma breathe  will revive and make new those hard desolate places.  It’s the very nature of who God is. He redeems the not so great places in our lives. He makes all things New! He makes all things Beautiful. God sees you as beautiful.
