My friends, know that I AM; Father God, is bigger than any storm that blows your way. Praise Him as you battle your storms. His outstretched arms are waiting for you to let go of the things that weigh you down. He can move those mountains in your life, raise you up out of those dark and depressing states, heal brokenness and make you whole, bring comfort to you unlike no other. He can and is able to do ALL things but fail.

Trust Him, believe in him, root yourself in faith and truth that he will work it out on your behalf. It ain’t over until the victory is won! The battle is not yours, it’s the Lord’s. Speak ( with authority and courage ) to those things that want to keep you in bondage in the mighty and powerful name of Jesus. You have authority to tell those mountains to MOVE!! Even with faith the size of a mustard seed, it is not impossible. ( Luke 17:6, Matthew 17:20 NKJV )

Believe in the words and promises of God that comes forth out of your heart through your mouth, speaking it into existence. Stand your ground and tell the devil he is a lie. O Satan from the pit of hell, get thee behind me. ( and you ) Rebuke him and his pitiful, evil minions who have nothing better to do with their time but steal, kill and destroy. You will not find truth, love or comfort from deceptive lies disguised in sheep’s clothing.

God is TRUTH, LOVE, LIFE, FREEDOM, JOY, FAITHFUL, MIGHTY, MERCIFUL, GRACIOUS, POWER, the great I AM, the strong TOWER AND FORTRESS, OMNIPOTENT, OMNIPRESENT, OMNISCIENT and our heavenly FATHER who wants nothing but the best for his children. An abundance of blessings that overflow in Him is waiting just for YOU! His love endureth FOREVER!! Nothing can separate you from the love of God in Christ Jesus ( Romans 8:39 ).

He has done many many mighty acts for his children, He raised his beloved Son from death to eternal life. Jesus paid the price so that we can live life in a way that no man on this earth can ever fulfill no matter what promises are made. Jesus stood in the gap and died for our sins so that we could have the opportunity to go before the Father submitting our prayers in supplication before Him, as well as receiving eternal life in heaven. No joy or happiness in this world can fill us the way He can deliver it and it will stay forever and always.

Jesus is the Wellspring of Life.

You will thirst no more when you draw from him on a daily basis. Go to the Well, lay your heart before his feet and receive.

No matter what you are going through, he is right there with you. Hold on tightly, keep waiting for your breakthrough. Be patient through your afflictions, trials and temptations, tears and wails. He sees you and has not forgotten about you. Glory to God, praise him while you can people. Live today as if it is your last. Tomorrow is promised to no one. If you have life and breath in your body, God is not done with you. You have been blessed with another day to live right and make changes that are edifying to how you life this life here on earth.

Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning. ( Psalm 30:5 )

Praise Him while you can cause it cannot be heard from the grave. Give your life to Christ if you never have, repent if you are a backslider and return back home. Home is with God. Peace that surpasses all understanding will be with you. God is standing at the door to welcome you home…..arms opened wide with a love in his heart that flows unconditionally.

Blessings and love for you today, tomorrow and forevermore in the name of Jesus Christ.

Breaking Me of My Own Will

Heavenly Father, I pray that your will, your way and your Word be embedded within my heart to reach out to those who need and seek you. I pray that your strength, comfort, blessings and your abounding love moves gently yet swiftly over your children. Remove the spiritual blinders that we carry that blocks us from receiving all that you have for us. Break us of our own will that we may be made perfect in You. May we seek righteousness, show compassion, be merciful and show grace towards others even when we feel that that they don’t deserve it. We are not in a place to judge anyone. You are the Judge, the Ruler. My God in heaven, remove the shackles that weigh us down and slows up our process in doing your will for our lives. May we strive to be a living example to those around us in a Christlike manner. I speak with authority in Christ Jesus that any negative seeds planted be uprooted and removed. I bind up everything that Satan tries to use against us to keep us from doing your will. I pray healing and deliverance from the crown of our heads to the souls of our feet. In Jesus name, Amen.
Where do I begin from here. Well today (actually this morning) has been challenging within itself to some degree. Emotional roadblocks here and there. Detours, twist and turns from out the blue. Geez, I wasn’t sure if things were going to get better. Well, I knew they would as long as I stayed focused and didn’t allow the troubles of the world to control and dictate my day. I know I can always count on God to bring me through the smallest things, knowing that He has moved mountains in my life before as well as storms that raged and blew mightily when I didn’t think I could recover from, but He did. Okay Terra, here we go again with being shaped and molded. I didn’t realize it at the time. He is creating a new woman in me. I am being refined by The Potter. It sounds lovely but it ain’t pretty y’all! Just think about pottery and everything that needs to take place in order to make it what the creator designed it to be! Amazing. 
Whoa, let me save that subject for another time. That sounds like some good stuff. ( smiling )
Let me get back on track. God is breaking me of my own will. This must take place in order for me to change bad habits, ways of thinking and doing. I must tell you that He is right up in my face! God may show himself in suttle ways and then BAM! There are times when you know he is on your case. That was me today. Feeling a litte flustered and moody. Sometimes it can be the smallest things that can set us off. Dumb stuff at that! I can laugh about it now, but during a time of stubborn mind thinking I wanted to have MY WAY. It felt good to feel that way though I know it was wrong and I was determined to have just that. ” Oh no you won’t ” is what  I heard as I was driving down the highway. As a parent corrects a child for their own good, God was doing just that in me. He was not about to let me throw a fit over something that I just needed to take time to pray about and let go until a way was found to deal with such matter. In my mind I was thinking and kinda acting bratty saying ” Omgosh, are you serious?!! Ugh. Fine then. Good grief! ” Needless to say, I let the matter of the heart go because I know His plan has a greater purpose than letting me have my way. Yes conviction set in and I just road the rest of the way to my destination reflecting. It was for my own good that I yielded. Ahh. I relaxed and smiled from that point. Why fight. I wasn’t going to win anyway! Might as well hear, receive and learn an on-the-go lesson. A seed was planted. Now as to how I care and tend to that seed is up to me. I want to reap a good harvest, so I will choose to take care of it properly day by day. 
In this, I want you to know that there is nothing wrong with having your will broken. We don’t know what’s best for us. Thankfully God does. Breaking of our own will is truly needed to grow. If we want to see a change then just ask God to help you do something you can’t do own your own if He doesn’t do it for you. I think he gives us chances to do it the easy way in so many words but if we chose to ignore, he will likley break us down to get our attention. Just like a good parent should do, He will dicipline us for our own good. Be encouraged and know God will work it out. Whatever it may be.
Thank you Lord for showing and allowing me to see where I was wrong so I could move forward. I pray the same for everyone that they too shall receive and reap a good harvest after their will has been broken and yours has taken it’s place. In love I thank you for teaching me what’s right.

The Butterfly Effect

Good day to you!



I pray that all is well with you and that your mindset is in a place of renewing. I want to start off by saying that I am again so thankful that I have been provided with an outlet to express myself and hopefully someone will be touched. My goal is to be obedient to the Lord and follow his rules for my life. Yes, I will slip and fall at times,but the key is to repent wholeheartedly and move forward. I will not allow the things that I allowed to cause me to stumble to hold me back. I say that I caused myself to stumble, because it is a choice that I made out of weakness. For it is by the Lord that I can overcome with his help and not on my own. I will fail each and every time if I try to do anything on my own.


Eph 4:23-24 Amp version tells us ” And be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind [ having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude ] , and put on the new nature ( the regenerate self ) created in God’s image [ Godlike ] in true righteousness and holiness.  


A short while ago I had posted a Facebook message about a dream I had about the most beautiful butterfly I had ever laid my eyes on. I’m not sure how many people read it but inspite of that, I just had to share my happiness. I have a love for butterflies and it’s just something about them that brings me joy! I have seen various colors and types,but this one I seen was one I had never laid my eyes on but it just has this special something about it that shined so brightly within my heart. I can say that I recognized the color palette from my childhood. It’s something I really can’t describe it. I can only say that over time looking back in the last 6 months or so through trials and tribulations in my life, that I see now that God had to allow me to go through some hardships to transform me. I am clay in His hands and the closer I have  drawn myself to Him when I have felt emotionally abandoned, the more He shows me. I think this is where the butterfly effect has been coming in to play. Metamorphosis…. this is the best way to describe it. It’s not an easy process from the beginning nor is it pretty depending on how you look at it,but in the end this beautiful, amazing being spreads it’s wings and fly. 





I know I have a calling on my life and as hard headed as I can be, it’s time to stop fighting. I want what He has for me but I want the easy route. Who doesn’t? But how can you actual testify to something if you don’t go through the fire? I am assured through prayer and submitting my case before Him that I will come out on top for his glory. Nothing goes unnoticed by Him and he wants the best for his children. Transformation is taking place within me. I am being renewed and restored. My faith and hope is placed in Him. God works  on his watch. No mine, not yours. Through this, I am being strengthened and my patience is being challenged as to how I respond to people and situations. This is my passion with a purpose. I want to be everything He has called and predestined me to be. I want all the blessings. I don’t want to miss out. Through this I know that I will lose many things. Dying to myself daily plays a major part. Letting go of anything and anyone that is not edifying must go as well. May I have to courage to go forth and not look back. I am naturally a nurturing person and want to help anyone that I can but it’s a downfall, a weakness if I am not careful. Everyone doesn’t have your best interest at heart and will sneak in like a wolf in sheep’s clothing to try and destroy you. I’ve been burned quite a few times but I realize more and more that I can’t be superwoman and save the day. It’s not my job. I will do my part if that and keep going.  The best I can do is pray. I love ya, but I gotta keep going for my journey has not ended and too many pit stops can potentially hold me up. This girl has things to do! 





Be blessed and may the Lord’s hand rest upon you.
