Bleeding! Male and Female!

Mark 5:25 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. 26 She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse. 27 When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, 28 because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.” 29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.

Like this woman, many of us, male and female are bleeding where eyes cannot see. We are bleeding in our hearts, and have tried many remedies but none have been able to cure us. We have seen many doctors, counselors, we have bent backwards and forward just to ease the pain but still no remedies. We have done all that we know and are still hurting!

Oh, how my heart bleeds due to betrayal, pain of lost companions, marriages, yours may be pregnancies after pregnancies, financial loss, grief, lonesomeness. Oh, how some of us have bleed out of all the relationships we have ever known. Our parents and siblings kept away from us, restricted, at best at arms lent for so many years.

We have worked on ourselves to somehow be accepted, approved, allowed, accommodated, but still bleeding, no remedies. We can hardly have a loved one around us. The stench of our conditions keeps them away. No one want to be seen near us, many do not want to be associated with us. Our hearts are bleeding! Lord! Will you please heal this we have cried?

And we want that loving touch, we crave the companionship, relationship, we do not want to be alone, but this blood! Pain? Hurts? Loss? The life blood, the essence of life, dripping away, weakening our hearts, our purse. We do not want to drift to oblivion so we seek out one last solution for we have heard and faith has arisen in us. Mark 5:28

Here comes Jesus friends, the solution bearer. He can heal every hurting heart. He can touch you where no other hand can go. He is ever present, ever faithful, always constant, he never sleeps, he never slumbers, only him can stop the bleeding, the pain deep within. Trust him and reach out!

Friends, we do need to reach out in faith to touch the helm of His garment. Mark 5:27

Some of us need to believe in love again! 🙂 There are still good people out there trust me! 🙂 I mean, I believe so!

Whatever ailment we have, there is healing, solution to our hurting heart, body, relationship, pocket, and much more.

Lord Jesus we reach out to you in faith today. We stretch out our hands to touch your garment, please heal us, stop this blood, you know what blood we are all talking about. You know where we all are bleeding from. That pain no one knows about, and the ones everyone knows about, heal it all Father in Jesus name.

Thank you Lord Jesus!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Be Encouraged! Striving For A Crown!

When you are striving for a crown, there is no room to waver. You must dig in your heel or else like Peter, you might sink. Matthew 14: 29 “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”

Discouragement will definitely come from different avenues. The facts of life will buffet you with tempest, other forces will band together to wear you out, cause fear, all this is to weary you out, to take your eyes off your goal. 

1 Corinthians 9: 26 do not run like someone running aimlessly; do not fight like a boxer beating the air.

Stay committed till the end!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Determined To Live Life!!!

For I know that faithful is He who called me

For at the appointed time, in a short time, this very season

I shall possess all that is mine in destiny

For the hand that is not of mortal is fighting for me

Recovering all that I have lost, withheld from me, and robbed off!

Great are you Lord! Be magnified!

Radiant Glory Of Love

bestrongI refuse to be hardened by the working of the elements

The seemingly conspiring of the universe

For all that God created are meant for my good

Although, I have been cheated many a times

Ridiculed, maligned, and oppressed

I counted it as nothing for the price set before me

For I know that faithful is He who called me

For at the appointed time, in a short time

As ordained of God, Most High

The Universe, all creation will conspire

To favor my righteous cause

I therefor will stand my ground

Resisting evil fiercely if need be

For God’s kingdom suffers violence

That I might see the Salvation of the Lord

For there is yet beauty beyond the ashes

Celebration, joy and peace

In the place of the storm

Life is still worth living

Beauty encased in!

Only to be revealed

To the willing, obedient, and determined

To get…

Favored By God!

Esther 2:8 So it was, when the king’s command and decree were heard, and when many young women were gathered at Shushan the citadel, under the custody of Hegai, that Esther also was taken to the king’s palace, into the care of Hegai the custodian of the women. Now the young woman pleased him, and she obtained his favor; so he readily gave beauty preparations to her, besides her allowance. Then seven choice maidservants were provided for her from the king’s palace, and he moved her and her maidservants to the best place in the house of the women. 10 Esther had not revealed her people or family, for Mordecai had charged her not to reveal it. 11 And every day Mordecai paced in front of the court of the women’s quarters, to learn of Esther’s welfare and what was happening to her.

She was from the lowliest, probably would not have been taken had her Uncle not hurriedly prepared her with the finest dress she possessed, brushed her hair and used the last perfume and some herbs to beautify her. I believe she was a willing party or else Uncle Mordecai would not have been able to walk her down the path for the palace messengers to see her. Esther was obedient!

Throughout the book of Esther, we saw her obedience and demeanor gaining her favor right from the Kings Eunuch to the King himself. At a later date when she desperately needed help for her people, she found favor also in the sight of God, for God made the King to favor Esther even when she had clearly broken the rules. Esther 5:2 So it was, when the king saw Queen Esther standing in the court, that she found favor in his sight, and the king held out to Esther the golden scepter that was in his hand. Then Esther went near and touched the top of the scepter. And the king said to her, “What do you wish, Queen Esther? What is your request? It shall be given to you—up to half the kingdom!”

Favor! Favor! Favor with God and man is critical in everyone’s fulfillment of destiny. This favor was what Queen Vashti lacked and many struggling through life today. Favor does make a lot of difference in anyone’s life. It overlooks every shortcomings- disobedience, facts of life, natural inconveniences and all to bestow on a person what they do not deserve or qualify for. Favor, the game changer is a gift bestowed by God! Favor can be activated with praise and worship, repentance of course, and getting right with God by forsaking every sin that easily besetts, forgiving others so you can receive forgiveness also – Matthew 6:12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

Shalom!
