Tis the season to be….

         This is the season to be…. jolly. However, in reality this is not everyone truth.

This season can conjure up a few emotions; for some joy, and for others it can be a difficult season. If you know of someone who will be celebrating without a love one, take the time to pick up the phone to reach out to them, send a note or take a trip to their home and let them know that they are not forgotten and you are mindful of them.

There are also families that are suffering financially, and if you have been blessed with much, consider being a blessing to those who are in need. (But you don’t need me to tell you that, right?) It doesn’t matter the size of the gift but the impact it will make on the receiver.

Let’s put the reason back into the season. I know it’s good to receive gifts but Christ came as a gift that brings good tidings to all. We all heard the saying, it’s better to give than receive take note from the three wise men that came bearing gifts to present to the new born Jesus. Don’t forget about Jesus: Jesus came into the world to bring the gift of salvation and reconciliation, let it not get trampled in the festivities of commercialism. May you and your family keep Jesus in the center of the season?

The greatest gift you can give this season is….first and foremost Jesus… the gift of yourself…love and time. When it’s all said and done; when the gifts is stripped of its wrapping, the bulbs and decorations is packed away in its bin until next season; the memories will out live the moment.

Enjoy the time you have with one another and be thankful

Merry Christmas,

Instructions To Live By

Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

Ephesians 5:1-2

Back From A Hiatus and I been thinking

Hello,

I’m back and with a vengeance! Initially, my break came by way of my granny getting ill and we were making hospital runs. Praise God for the power of prayer and the healing hand of God. I seen the power of God move in a way that I have never before in this personal setting. My granny is 82 and was having complication breathing. She went to the hospital for the same matter back in March. However, this time the trip was much more awakening, that time with her is of essence and more precious now than ever.

With Mother’s Day approaching this Sunday, it causes me to reflect on her very presence in my life. My Granny has been a very intricate role in our life; she was there to pick up the pieces when life for us fell apart. She has housed numerous of her grandchildren, we all have lived with her at some point even housing multiple families at once, in addition to taking in and raising children that was grafted into the family through marriage and raising them as she did with her own, never showing partiality.

This is the woman that came to mind when I saw her laying upon a hospital bed with IV, tubes and an oxygen mask that supported her breathing. Upon walking into the situation, the room was filled with family members weeping, and from the position of walking in I could see why, but, faith said otherwise. I couldn’t allow the dictation of what I saw over-ride what I heard. When we got the call, that they were taking her in fear attempted to crept in because they made it seems that it was the end; but after I shook off the fear I asked, God “What You say, live or die? If, he would have said the latter then I was prepared to accept it, but in my spirit I heard LIVE and that settled it. Therefore, my mission when headed to the room was praying to see Lazarus raised but when getting there I felt how Jesus, did when he went into the house of Jairus, people reporting doom, mourning and weeping. I couldn’t put them out literally, so I had to close my mind to there attendance and believe what I had heard and began praying in the Spirit. Praying in the Spirit is essential period but especially beneficial when you don’t know what to pray. Yielding to the Holy Spirit is more profitable than attempting to conjure up some well heartfelt but ineffective renderings.  Please understand it is important to know when and allow the Chief Intercessor to flow through you. It is always beneficial. I knew not what to pray and relied on the one who did. I am in no way saying that my prayer alone brought the power of God on the scene but, I do know that the effectual fervent prayer of the righteous man availeth much and coming into agreement with all the others who were praying availed much more power! 

This situation has revealed something about me that still perplex me about FAITH, my faith that is. It’s funny because I experience it in various other situations and I believe it’s because I am an intercessor. There are certain times, situations and problems that my faith is charged, engaged for the battle of warfare and understand my authority in the situation. I find this behavior is so, when there is life threatening situation, when someone is faced with marital issues, praying for the salvation of someone, so on and so forth. The operative word here is when I am in battle for someone, some situation, or something that has taken place on the news in the world. At these times I have seen the results of answered prayer but then on the other hand when I am engaged in battle for myself, the answers seem to be more distant than instant; the process of time seems to be more drawn out, which in turn effect the way I perceive my authority and baffles me that breakthroughs are happening on one front and halt on another. I thought I was alone until talking to my cousin who brought up the same point during our conversation.

Which bring me to ask you? Are there times in your prayer walk that you’ve seen answers when praying on the behalf of others and in your own life the answer seem to take longer and have you ever pondered why and what was  the answer revealed to you why? Please use the comment section to chime in and help me understand.

 PS: I have downloaded the WordPress  app for android and attempted to use it as a way to keep up on post but to no avail, for some reason I keep getting an error messages when I attempt to publish post.

Also, I have been contemplating about life, direction and this new season; that’s part two of my absence. I have had a few comments and I appreciate the kind words and the encouragement to post more. I will indeed work out the kinks with my wordpress app and/or phone, so that even if I can’t do a full post, I can publish a verse, word of encouragement or quote.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

Be Inspired,

Danietra

 

With Out the shedding of blood

I couldn’t think of a better time to return. I apologize for not living up to the name of this blog (daily devotionals). Nevertheless, Resurrection Sunday is upon us. This is the time that really brings home the purpose of Christ birth; I know we celebrate Christmas, but think the whole purpose of Christmas was to bring Him to the point of Good Friday, where He was wounded, bruised and chastised all for the sake of LOVE and redemption.

For without the shedding of blood there will be no remission of sin. From Christmas- to- the Cross, but, praise God that the story did not conclude there….cause on the THIRD day He arose with all…POWER!!!!

In this week of reflection I will endeavor to come to you with inspiration, magnifying the final days of Jesus life and celebrating His RESURRECTION and what that means for you and me.

 

Jesus Mission

Jesus came to seek and save the lost and by giving His life for ransom, He redeems man from the fallen state of sin and reconciles us back unto a loving Father.

Jesus is the bridge in which we must cross in order to come into relationship with a Holy God. There is no other way in which man can be SAVED. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life and….light!

Jesus is the door that mankind must enter into and Easter is the path way that has made it our reality. If any man comes to the Father he must come by way of me (Jesus).

 

Take time to reflect, meditate and celebrate the fact that you are loved to the point of Someone ( Example of love in deed and not word) exchanging their life for yours.

 

For God so loved the world, that He gave His ONLY begotten Son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life.

John 3:16
