Back To School Blessing

Dear Heavenly Father,

I thank You for the beautiful gifts You’ve given us. You’ve entrusted us with our children who we dedicate to You. I lift up each each parent and pray you strengthen them and give them divine wisdom and encouragement. Give them the resources they need, and bless each family abundantly.

I lift up every child going back to school, I pray this will be the best year yet. Send Holy Spirit to lead them and protect them.

Help them to learn and grow in your ways and to excel in their classes. Strengthen them and help them to follow You and lead others to You. May Your God confidence be their foundation and Your grace be their guide.

Lord give them eyes to see, ears to hear, and willing and open hearts. Help them walk in Your ways, loving those around them.

Send revival to our schools Lord. May Your presence dwell in each heart, each teacher, each class, and every school.

I pray You would protect them from any harm or danger. Station Your warring angels around each child and school and let no evil come near them. Protect them from the evils of this world.

I come against the spirit of comparison, not being good enough. The spirit of bullying, protect those who can’t protect themselves. I come against any spirit of addiction. I come against any and all attacks of the enemy and say you CANNOT have our children and bind the plans of the enemy and send them back to the fiery pits of hell where they came from.

Lord, Your promises are YES AND AMEN for our families so bless each and every family. Help them to grow closer to You and each other. In the mighty name of Jesus I pray, Amen!

Hope you and your family have an amazing school year! May God bless you abundantly, provide for you in ways you can’t imagine, and bless and protect you sweet friends!

Big hugs,

Let It Start With Prayer

Good morning beautiful TOG readers. What’s going on this week with y’all? Are you getting ready for your kids to go back to school? Shopping was always the fun part to me and my girls. Sadly, I don’t get to do that anymore. Mine are 27, 26, and 23. We still get our shop on just not for back to school.

Back to school time always reminds me of this, LOL!

Today is my youngest first day as a kindergarten teacher. So proud of her! She’s gonna be a great teacher.

My other daughter, who is also a teacher her kids start next week. I got to help her work on her room a little last week. So fun! She’s such a great teacher, this is her 3rd year and I couldn’t be more proud.

My other daughter teaches little ones year round. She’s a reverend as well and has such a heart for children with disabilities. Praying God opens a door for her to do just that.

Back to school time is the start of a new year for kids and your family but it can be a stressful time.

LET IT START WITH PRAYER!

Prayer is so important! “Prayer is the link that connects you to God.” Pray for your teachers! Pray for your kids to have the right friends and make right choices.

Stand firm on God’s Word, let nothing move you precious one. Keep your kids and families covered in prayer. Days will get long and hard and you may seem like you can’t go anymore but my friend even in your darkest days God has you right in the palm of His hand. He will not loosen His hold on you. He will be right with you every step of the way. Lean into Him, for He is the Waymaker.

Big hugs,

Praise Precedes The Victory

Some days, your battles may feel like a mighty army coming against you, making victory feel unattainable. Your battle could be sickness, a financial need, an addiction, loss of a loved one, marital problems/family problems, or a combination of things coming against you.

You may even feel bound up in chains with no hope of ever breaking free. When you are fighting for your healing, freedom, or breakthrough, singing praises to the Lord may be the last thing you think of doing, but praise is one of the most powerful weapons we have when it comes to the attacks of the enemy.

If you are facing a difficulty today, do like Joshua and the Israelites did. God told them to circle the city 1 time for 6 days and on the 7th day take 7 laps and then cry out with a shout, a battle cry and the walls of the city will come crashing down. That is for you too precious one. God is no respecter of persons, what he did back then he will do for you. Your problem or circumstances maybe great but I’m here to tell your God IS GREATER!

So whatever your problem is give it to God, claim his promises because he’s ALREADY given you the victory. He’s ALREADY conquered death. He’s ALREADY healed you and delivered you. We have to see it with our spiritual eyes and praise Him that it’s already been done. Praise precedes the victory my friend.

“Circle God’s promise and not the problem”. Charlotte Gambill

You are a Trophy of God’s grace and He loves you so very much. He has great plans for you, now let’s walk in them.

Hugs,

Please enjoy this song by New Life Worship, Great I Am. Click the link below.

“The mountains shake before Him. The demons run and flee At the mention of the name King of Majesty. There is no power in Hell Or any who can stand Before the power and the Presence of the Great I Am.”

Reckless Love Of God

Sometimes it feels that we are going through life alone but let me encourage you God is right there with you. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He’s coming after you.

In the last few months going through all this sickness and crazy stuff, it’s been one thing after another. I have felt scared and I have felt alone but I have to say it’s been in those moments of pressing in God has been more real to me and I have felt closer to Him. He has shown me his goodness and kindness. He’s helping me to trust Him more and depend less on my feelings and what I see going on around me. He has even sent precious new friends to lift me up.

So what do you do when fear comes at you?

Do you bow to fear?

Do you isolate?

Do you lash out?

Do you let it take over?

If I’m honest, I’ve done it all, maybe your there now too. Don’t be ashamed it’s ok but now is the time to rise up precious one. It’s time to change your confession.

Lately God has shown me that I have to fight back with His word, the sword of the Spirit more so than ever before. It’s part of our armor we need to put on every day like getting dressed. But it’s our choice, we have to choose to pick up God’s word. We have to choose to fight against fear, anxiety, sickness, addictions or whatever it is your going through. His Word is alive, active and sharper than any 2 edged sword and so powerful that it cannot return void.

Your circumstances may look dark and you may not see a way out but God has a way of lighting up the darkness or kicking down walls that are hurting or hindering you. He’s coming after you, He’s coming to your rescue.

We have the power within us, we just have to choose to use it. The power of life and death is in the tongue, so CHOOSE LIFE! SPEAK LIFE!

“The LORD is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” Deuteronomy 31:8

Remember YOU are a trophy of grace and God loves you and has a perfect plan for your life! You have a destiny to fulfill!

Blessings,

Nicole💗

Enjoy the video Reckless Love, clock the link below.

“There’s no shadow You won’t light up. Mountain You won’t climb up, Coming after me.There’s no wall You won’t kick down. Lie You won’t tear down. Coming after me.”

Be Expecting God to move….

Expect to see what’s been declared over your life. Expect God to show up in your circumstances! The blessings of the Lord are on you, there is a BULLSEYE on you waiting to bless you, heal you, set you free, and restore what needs to be restored. I believe there’s a shift coming for God’s people. I believe Gods promises for my life and yours.

“The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it .” 1 Thessalonians 5:24

“He that began a good work will complete it.. “Philippians 1:6

Whatever you need, look to His Word, His promises are for YOU! Live life expecting good things instead of expecting the bad like“Ok what’s going to happen next?” Just waiting for the shoe to drop. I’ve been that way myself about things in my life. I believe for other people but I don’t always believe that God will do it for me. I’ve been anxious and fearful about things, not fully trusting God to take care of me or whatever is going on. But I’m here to tell you God is NO respecter of persons!! What He does for someone else believe He WILL DO FOR YOU PRECIOUS ONE!!

All the days of the desponding and afflicted are made evil [by anxious thoughts and forebodings], but he who has a glad heart has a continual feast [regardless of circumstances. Proverbs 15:15

So we must live with a cheerful and expectant heart. That doesn’t mean everything is going perfect in our lives it just means we are trusting God to perfect that which concerns us. SO BE EXPECTANT THAT SOMETHING GOOD IS GOING TO HAPPEN IN YOUR LIFE, YOUR MARRIAGE, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR FINANCES AND HEALTH.

Whatever it is your going through, or whatever you need look to His promises, His Word and believe that! Cling to that! For we walk faith and not by sight. We may not see it just yet or circumstances may look awful and but we “Call those things that be not as though they are.” Live your life expecting that something good is going to happen because God is for you. He has a hope and future for you and what the enemy meant to harm and destroy God WILL WORK FOR YOUR GOOD precious one! Amen!

Be blessed and big hugs🤗
