Miracle of the Moment

Miracle of the moment….Joyce was talking about that today. It was really good. I think so often we are just so busy just going through the motions we often miss so much or we are aggravated when things don’t go our way. We don’t realizing God might actually have a purpose and plan for the little hiccups of life.

That was yesterday for me, ohhhhh but I realized right when it happened. I was supposed to meet my dad for lunch yesterday at 11:30 but I had to go and pick up my truck from the car place first. Which let me just say how excited I was to pick it up😍 They had it FOREVER! But they blessed me with a rental. Anywho, so I had to stop and fill it up first before taking it back. I went to leave the gas station and I couldn’t get the key to work lol🤣🙈 I literally sat there 10 minutes trying to get the key to turn over. It was ridiculous. I just chuckled to myself and said out loud ‘Well, the Lord must be protecting me from a wreck or something’ and just moved on. Got to the car place and they took SOOO LONG! They didn’t do a credit, had to look into it, the normal person wasn’t there, etc. Basically, it all made me 30 mins late.

Dad and I were sitting in my truck eating lunch at Chick-fil-A with our windows down and this man walks up and asks if I had jumper cables, his battery had died while he was eating lunch in his car. I was like YESSS! I do and hopped out and got them. I said to him it’s your lucky day I was running 30 mins late otherwise I wouldn’t have been here. He prolly thought I was crazy but he didn’t know all the things that had happened. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m sure someone else could’ve or would’ve helped him but it just reminds me that God is in the details. He was in that moment where I couldn’t get that stupid key to work. He was there at the car place where they took soooo long to get me my truck. He arranges things, and he will set you up to be in the right place at the right time.

I know this was just a small incident but it still shows me just how BIG my God is. See my friend, He does order our steps just like the Word says. Yesterday, I was able to help someone in just a small way but God ministered to me in that moment in such a BIG way.

Don’t miss the miracle of moment. When things aren’t going your way today, tomorrow, next week, remember God orders our steps and He arranges things we don’t see.

Maybe you had car trouble, but maybe God protected you from an accident.

Maybe that cashier is new and sloooow but maybe you are there to encourage them.

Maybe you are 30 minutes late for a lunch date and your mad at yourself but maybe you were late to help and be blessing to someone else.

It’s the miracle of moment. Don’t miss what God is doing around you sweet friend.

Hope you have a blessed and wonderful day!

Big hugs,

Stay Focused

Focus has been my word here lately, not just for the task at hand but in life issues as they come up. I’m learning if I stay focused on Jesus instead of what’s going on around me everything goes so much better. My emotions are more stable and the enemy can’t derail me.

But those times that I don’t is when I begin to get sidetracked, I start focusing on my problems…..I think about it, talk about it, think about it, talk about it, that’s when everything goes haywire for me. The enemy likes nothing better then to distract us any way he can from our destiny.

Do you recognize the distraction in your life?

We’ve gotta learn to stay focused on Jesus, speak life, speak His promises to ourselves, over our families and marriages, etc.

All that negative talk will get you NOWHERE but further in the pit!! Stand firm and focused on each and every one of His promises is for YOU and your family. YOU are destined for greatness precious one!! He’s got great plans for you!!

Big hugs,

Fix Your Eyes On Jesus

Focus has been my word for quite sometime not just for the task at hand but also in life issues as they arise. If you think about it we are always focused on something, good or bad our attention goes somewhere. I’m learning as situations come up if I stay focused on Jesus, and keep my eyes on him instead of the problems going on around me, my thought life is better and my emotions are more stable. Which makes for a happier life, cus let’s be real if Moma ain’t happy nobody’s happy. As the saying goes, “Happy wife, happy life”😂

Believe me I’m not saying that this is easy because sometimes it’s darn right hard and feels impossible at times. But we always have a choice. When I choose wrong that’s when I begin to get sidetracked, I focus on my problems, I think about it, talk about it, think about it, talk about it, and that’s when every goes haywire for me. The committee in my mind convenes and then I’m in BIG trouble. Maybe you can relate to that?

The Word says the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy but I’ve also learned that if the enemy knows you have enough of God and His word in you he knows he cannot destroy you so he has to move onto Plan B…..Distractions. He will work so hard set up distractions to keep you derailed from walking in your destiny and that’s exactly what he wants. He doesn’t have to destroy you just distract you.

The enemy knows YOU are a danger to him and that you walking in your destiny will destroy him and benefit the Kingdom and that’s the last thing he wants. He doesn’t want you or I to fulfill the call on our lives.

Do you recognize the distraction in your life?

Do you recognize the things that crop up to steal your peace, joy, past victories, freedom, etc?

We’ve gotta learn to stay focused on Jesus, speak life, speak His promises over ourselves, over our families, marriages, problems, etc. That negative talk will get you NOWHERE but further in the pit!!

YOU ARE NOT A PIT DWELLER!

No matter how bad things are in your life, no matter how deep you’ve fallen into the pit of hell let me assure you God is right there with you! He IS in control and He will never loosen his grip on you.

So stretch your hands toward Heaven and He will lift you out of the pit, out of the hopelessness you feel, and set your feet upon a rock giving you a firm place to stand and direct your steps my friend.

You are a Trophy of Grace precious one so stand firm and focused, don’t give into the distractions and never give up. Every one of His promises is for YOU and YOU are destined for greatness!! He loves you with an everlasting love and He’s got great plans for you!!

Blessings and hugs,
