Surrender all to Jesus

Surrender all to Jesus❤️💜💖

Verse: “Cast your burden on the Lord [release it] and He will sustain and uphold you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken (slip, fall, fail).”

Psalms 55:22

Surrender all to Jesus.

Hey everyone. So I am sure you saw where I have been taking a break from writing. I decided to take a break because I felt like I wasn’t writing about God but only writing about myself. So I want to say sorry to all of you because I haven’t been writing with the focus on God but instead I focused on myself and my pain. But now I am back and I am feeling much better! God has really been helping me and now I feel I can write to please Him.

Today I wanted to talk about surrendering all to Jesus. Sometimes when we trust God something but not everything. It’s like trusting God with your finances but not trusting God with your marriage. When that’s not what God wants us to do. God wants us to surrender and trust Him with EVERYTHING: our doubts, fears, anxieties, pain, health, finances, marriage, work, school, kids, family, friends, and so much more.

So how do you surrender all to God?

I am so glad you asked! You surrender all to God by seeking God through prayer and saying something like: “God, I want to surrender everything to you: my life, my dreams, my health, my family, and everything. I give you EVERYTHING! I cast all my cares to you Lord. I trust you with everything. I surrender all to you Jesus my amazing Savior.”

Then you get to relax and now that God is in control. You get to watch as God starts to work in your life and you get to see some amazing things happen. Because when you surrender and trust God, good things will come and happen because good things come to those who love and trust in God (Lamentations 3:25).

But remember that you still have to continue to seek God by reading His word, worshiping Him, listening to Him, and talking to Him. As you seek God, He will draw near to you (Psalm 125:1-2).

Even though surrendering all and trusting God is scary and can be tough, remember that with God on your side, you can do anything! (Matthew 19:26)

Prayer:

Dear God,

God, I want to surrender everything to you: my life, my dreams, my health, my family, and everything. I give you EVERYTHING! I cast all my cares to you Lord. I trust you with everything. I surrender all to you Jesus my amazing Savior. I know that you are so good even when life isn’t. I know that you hear me and you will help me. I believe that good things for coming for me because you have promised good things to those who trust in you. I praise you for your goodness, mercy, and love.

I thank you for all my many blessings and for Your Son.

In Jesus’s name, I pray, Amen!

The crown of life!👑

The crown of life!👑

Verse: “’Blessed [happy, spiritually prosperous, favored by God] is the man who is steadfast under trial and perseveres when tempted; for when he has passed the test and been approved, he will receive the [victor’s] crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.’”

James 1:12

On Monday I will be following my dreams and going into the school of ministry! Thank you for all your prayers, I am truly excited!

Maybe right now, you are really struggling. Maybe you are battling mental illness, chronic illness, cancer, or maybe you lost a loved one. No matter what you are facing, God is here to help you through it and He promises you a crown of life that never fades away (James 1:12).

I don’t know what storm you are facing right now but I do know that you can get through. No matter what you are facing: God is bigger, mightier, and stronger than anything we will ever face!

He has also promised us that He will always be there for us (Psalm 121:1-2). So we can always go to Him by seeking Him through reading His word, praying to Him, listening to Him, and worshiping Him. As we seek Him we will draw near to us (Psalm 125:1-2). He will be there to guide us, love us, comfort us, encourage us, listen to us, forgive us, and help us. He will give us everything we need to fight and win this battle (Matthew 19:26).

What is even more amazing about God is He promised us that after life, we get to go to heaven and have a crown of life (James 1:12). Once you have been saved and born again, you are accepted into God’s family and when you die, you get to go to heaven and party with Jesus (John 3:16)!

What amazing gift that Jesus has given us! Praise God! Thank you Jesus!

Prayer:

Dear God,

God, right now I am really struggling. I am facing a storm and I need your help. I pray that you grab my hand and help me through it. I know that with you on my side Lord, I can do all things. I ask that you bless me with everything I need to fight this battle and win! I also want to thank you Lord for your promise of the crown of life. I want to thank for your gift to the world of Jesus and for me going to heaven when I die. I thank you for all your love, goodness, and mercy.

I thank you for all my many blessings and for your Son.

In Jesus’s name, I pray, Amen!

How to overcome shame

How to overcome shame

Verse: ‘[looking away from all that will distract us and] focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith [the first incentive for our belief and the One who brings our faith to maturity], who for the joy [of accomplishing the goal] set before Him endured the cross, disregarding the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God [revealing His deity, His authority, and the completion of His work]. ‘

Hebrews 12:2

****trigger warning: I talk about my abusive boyfriend, I don’t talk about what he did but I do say abuse*****

For many years, shame was my friend. After finally breaking up with my abusive boyfriend, all I felt was shame. I left him when I was 16 and now as I am 21 I have finally learning to heal from all the pain he caused me. But I don’t have to live in shame. Jesus defeated shame when He died on the cross. You don’t have to live in shame either!

There is a difference between guilt and shame. Guilt is when you have done something wrong and you feel bad about it. Shame is when you believe something is wrong with you. Shame makes you want to run away from God because you feel worthless. You feel God could never love you. Those are LIES!

God loves you so much (John 3:16). God doesn’t want you to live in shame. He wants you to run into His arms by seeking Him through prayer. He wants you to tell Him everything you are feeling. He will be there to listen and help you (Isaiah 49:13).

Now just going to God once will not heal your shame. You have to continue to seek God by reading His word, talking to Him, listening to Him, and worshiping Him. Letting go of shame is a process and doesn’t happen overnight. But God will be there with you, every step of the way (Hebrews 13:5).

God will be there to give you everything you need to overcome shame (Deuteronomy 7:9). Because you can and will overcome shame with God by your side! Because you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you (Phillpians 4:13).

Prayer:

Dear God,

God, I am battling shame. I know I can’t overcome shame without you. So I pray that you come to me and help me. Grab my hand and walk through life with me. I need you Lord and I love you. I know that with you by my side, I can do all things. I ask that you bless me with everything I need to overcome shame. I praise you for your goodness, love, and never ending mercy. You are a good father. I thank you for listening to me. I believe that you hear me and that you will help me.

I thank you for all my many blessings and for Your Son.

In Jesus’s name, I pray, Amen!

How to have hope

How to have hope

Verses: “’O Israel, hope in the Lord ; For with the Lord there is loving kindness, And with Him is abundant redemption.’”

Psalms 130:7

Since I have been listening and watching Joyce Meyer’s show and reading her books. I have realized that I have been thinking about hope the wrong way this whole time.

Joyce Meyer says: “Hope is not a feeling but an action. The action is to get out of bed everyday and say: ‘something good is going to happen to me today!’ For you to believe that and say that every single day.

I want to challenging you all and I will do it with you, that everyday as we get out of bed, we say: “Something good is going to happen to me today!”

So with this new year I am starting something exciting and I want you guys to do it with me. I am starting a gratitude journal and everyday I write down a couple of things I am thankful for that day. Then I spend the rest of the day looking for more positive things to write down tomorrow.

Hope is an action and to have hope we have to fix our mindset on God, His promises, and our blessings. Also we need to pray to God for Him to bless us with hope. But we have to do our part by seeking God through prayer, worship, reading His word, and listening for Him. God will draw near to you as you seek Him (Psalm 125:1-2).

I am challenging you all to start a gratitude journal, make time to seek God, and wake up everyday and say: “Something good is going to happen to me today!”

I will do it with you! So let’s kick this new year off right by seeking God and having hope!

Prayer:

Dear God,

I want to have an amazing new year Lord. I pray that as I seek you through prayer, worship, reading Your word, and listening for you that I grow closer to you. Help me to build a close relationship with you as I seek you. I pray that as I do my gratitude journal that it helps me focus on you, your promises, and all the blessings in my life. I pray that you renew my mind to where my eyes are always fixed on you. I love you so much. I know that you hear and I believe that you will help me. I thank you for your goodness, love, and never ending kindness. I praise you for your Son and the start of a new year!

I thank you for all my many blessings and for Your Son.

In Jesus’s name, I pray, Amen!
