My Sis Mia Deneen (check her out on iTunes Album”Look up”) covered this song on her instagram.
Natalie Grant – Clean
God knew I needed this song this morning. Oh how it’s ministering to me. I have to share some of the lyrics:
“I see shattered
You see whole
I see broken
But You see beautiful
And You’re helping me to believe
You’re restoring me piece by piece
There’s nothing too dirty that You can’t make worthy
You wash me in mercy
I am clean.”
Do you know the Purpose of your Testimony:
Purpose of a testimony
Leads us to Praise God: It gives God the Glory for the things He has done. We can’t tell of what God’s done and not Praise Him. You need to feel the presence of God, testify of His goodness.
Reminds us that God is able: It reminds us that God is able! If he did it before He will do it again.
Encourage the Saints/Believers: It encourages other people and let’s them know that just as God worked out your situation. He can and will do the same for them!
Evangelizes to the Unbeliever: Your testimony will bring others to Christ. People hear about what God has done for you, and it makes them want to know Jesus for themselves.
Our testimony tells people specifically what God has done for us. It brings God Glory, Reminds us that God is able, encourages our brothers and sisters in the Faith, and it draws the Lost to Christ.
Somebody ought to Testify!
I’ve been blessed by God to work with women and their most intimate matters of the heart. Sometimes we need a safe place to help us identify the hidden issues of the heart.

I am Happily Married but it wasn’t always that way. I experienced great embarrassment, shame, and regret in my past relationship. I woke up with a message from the Lord that He wants to bring together His children to form Kingdom Marriages. He wants to do it SOON and He will do it quickly! Those that know my testimony know my relationship with my husband happened suddenly. It’s because God brought us together to fulfill His purpose, nope it wasn’t even about me! What is required? Healing and Obedience

So this may not be my most popular post but I pray it reaches the souls it’s meant to save, In Jesus Name!
Discipline, rebuke, chastisement, and warnings from God are all a part of His love for His children. In knowing this why do we feel angry, rejected, or depressed when our wrongs are uncovered, our toes are stepped on, or we are confronted with our need to change?
It’s Monday and this weekend many of us were in worship services where we heard the Word of God, know we are wrong as 2 left shoes, but we put it in the back of our heads and just go on about the day. We have no repentive heart, no intention on making changes, and will not take the steps to prevent the destruction in which we were warned about!
If you know you are wrong in the sight of the all Powerful God and have received warning after warning and refuse to make a change you are really saying, “God I don’t want your love!” And when you say that, you are really saying, “God I don’t want your salvation!!!”
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 KJV
If you know you are experiencing God’s discipline and correction, you are in good company. Get it right, make the changes, and receive God’s love while you have the time.
I can’t let the day go by without sharing some love with my sisters and brothers grieving and remembering the babies that they never got to see grow up.
The pain gets better but never completely goes away! It can hit you out of no where. Yes I’ve questioned God, I stopped praying, I’ve been angry, and envious. It wasn’t until I cried out to God, was honest with Him about how I felt about what He allowed, started sharing my story, and allowed myself to believe again that I begin to heal!
I don’t care if you were pregnant for only 6 weeks. Maybe you cared for your baby for 3 months and they suddenly passed. Maybe you didn’t get to announce to the world your pregnancy or you never got to take your baby home from the hospital. You were that child’s parent. You are in my thoughts and prayers today. Break the silence and shame!
Today’s pic features lyrics from Ericka Campbell’s song Help.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help! Help can be a one word prayer when you pray it, cry it, even scream it expecting the Lord to come to the rescue. See when we cry out help without belief that help is on the way, we waste our breath, tears, and voices.
How many have gotten frustrated because we feel those around us should recognize we need help and just jump in, or offer? 🖐🏽 (I’m raising my hand.) Then how many get angry, frustrated, or hurt when that doesn’t work? 🖐🏽 (I’m raising my hand again.)
Some things you won’t have earthly help to get over. At least not at first. See God wants to show you that you can overcome it, achieve it, or heal it with Him alone. Why?
- So He can get ALL the Glory and you can know that you know He is real!
- So you can Help somebody else that encounters the same situation.
I know, “why me Lord” may be going through your mind but “why not you!!”
There is a caveat to this post. If you are in danger or at risk of harming yourself or others, Go get help! There are resources for you.

Do you know it’s a sin to not love yourself? It’s not just a sin but it’s an insult to your creator! When you hate any part of your being: body, your looks, your mistakes, even your issues you are really saying the following:
- Lord you didn’t make me good enough
- Lord how you made me is all wrong
- Lord your blood doesn’t have the power to forgive my mistakes and give me a greater future
- Lord I don’t believe you are able to fix what I’m going through right now
Now most of us would not say these things to God in our prayer time. Yet we repeat these things over and over in our mind and spirit when we put ourselves down!
If you don’t like something about your life, love yourself enough to change what you can and believe God to do the rest!
He made no mistakes when he created you. He knew you would mess up, he knew you wouldn’t look like anyone else, and he even knew at times you would doubt Him.
With all that, He still thinks you are to Die for!!! The least you can do for Him is Love Yourself…Smooches
You must spend time with God in order to recognize His voice above all others. This may sound overwhelming or complicated but it doesn’t have to be. One place to hear God speak to you is through His Word, the Bible. Another is through prayer and conversation, you speak to Him and wait for Him to speak to you. Another is just in stillness and silence.
You must first believe you can hear His voice and then you should expect it. It’s so important to know how He speaks to you so you can discern the voices that are not His.
If you are waiting for a spouse. That persons communication should mimic how God speaks. If it doesn’t, they are not the one or are not ready. Either way, run!!!
Thoughts bombard us sometimes. Our Self-Talk should mimic the voice of God or you should shut it down with the Word of God and the Name of Jesus!
Get to know His Voice!
“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”
John 10:27 NKJV
Do you get frustrated because the people closest to you don’t recognize when you need help? Maybe you are going through and as the encourager and cheerleader for others you wish you had one for yourself.
You are not alone, you are part of the tribe I’ll call “The Strong Ones.” I have a message for you today:
People aren’t neglecting you. Don’t get offended, frustrated, and angry when they don’t respond the way you expect. See, you go through tests and trials so well that people think you really have it all together. They don’t know how you really feel and wouldn’t know how to respond if they did. But there is one that cares, He knows about it, and He will give you the strength to endure and come out of the fire without being burned! His name is Jesus! Cry out to Him, lay down and tell Him all about it! He knows what suffering is. He knows what it feels like to feel forsaken, hurt, and disappointed. Share your heart with Him today and keep it moving.
Don’t get mad at people in your circle and what seems like a lack of care. Truth is they do love you and they care. Believe it or not, even trials look good on you! 😉
