He fills your life with blessings and watches over you as though you were the only person alive who He loved. His every thought is good toward you and God wants to pour out a blessing on you that you can’t contain.

One Simple Act of Encouragement

A little encouragement goes a long way.
When my mom was going through a divorce she also lost her mom. I never really explained what happened to me during the time of grief my mom was going through.

I often prayed that she would feel better for herself, and realize no one deserves to be cheated on, left abandoned in their own home and for her ex-husband to show no love for the mother-in-law that treated him like her own son.

My mom went through so much in such a little time. I remember having to wake up at 6am to get her out of bed. I would stand beside her bed, pulling her arm, and telling her she has to get up, so she will have her job. I remember being encouraging through the most difficult time of her life, but I knew once I got her going she will be alright. I just had to get her going; one step at a time.

She eventually found herself and a guy that treated her decent (at the time). During this time she didn’t come home as often but I didn’t tell anyone. I often laid in the bed wondering when she would come home. I was happy that she was okay, but during all that time I was being strong for her, but now I was losing myself.

I was having to get up early, go to high school, and college, often finding rides with my best friend, maintaining on the honor roll, and showing I can graduate through all circumstances. However, on the weekends I was depending on alcohol to ease my woes, and frustrations.

My mom was barely coming home, my friends were working or talking about other stuff while I worried about gas in my car and the power being turned off, or where the next meal would come from. On weekends I often spend time with my friends knowing I would eat.
Now don’t get me wrong I wasn’t starving, I ate at school, and my best friend Justin often came to get to me to take me out to eat. He knew what was going on, but we often didn’t speak of it. He made me laugh as much as he could, which was a lot.

I had friends tell me I was heading down the wrong path, but I knew this. I didn’t want them to be my parent. I wanted them to encourage me, how to help me, or etc.

I eventually would lay on my bed in the mornings praying for my morning hangover to ease, and pray for God to just send me someone to help me. Someone who would help me stop drinking, someone to show me they cared instead of talking down at me, like I didn’t know what was wrong.

Within two weeks God places my husband in my life. His exact words was “If were going to be together, the drinking will stop.”
I knew then God listened to me, and opened my eyes that He can put people in your life for a reason.

One Simple Act of Encouragement can go a long way. Just remember next time you are down to never give up on something good happening in your life.

Ask For Help
Starting Your Day Right by Joyce Meyer

September 7
Confess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray [also] for one another, that you may be healed and restored [to a spiritual tone of mind and heart]. The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working]
. — James 5:16

Addictions, habits, or negative attitudes can wear you out. If you need deliverance from some wrong behavior, the Bible teaches that the Holy Spirit is your helper (see John 14:16). Confess your need to God, and ask Him to deliver you.
He may lead you to confess your faults to other believers whom you can trust to pray for you. The Word says that we are to confess our faults to one another so that we may be healed and restored. If you are out of control in some area, be honest about it. Today can be your day of deliverance.

Do you have anything you need to confess?

Mark 11: 22-24
22And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
23For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
– Believe in Faith
– Be careful what you say
– By What I say is it giving authority to God or Satan.

Proverbs 18: 21
21Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
– If you believe it then you will speak it.

Romans 4: 14
For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void , and the promise made of none effect.
– Speak into Existence
– God is not bit and pieces
– If you want something; you will study & search to find it.

John 14: 12
12Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
– We will do great things

Job 3
1After this opened Job his mouth, and cursed his day.
2And Job spake, and said,
3Let the day perish wherein I was born, and the night in which it was said, There is a man child conceived.
4Let that day be darkness; let not God regard it from above, neither let the light shine upon it.
5Let darkness and the shadow of death stain it; let a cloud dwell upon it; let the blackness of the day terrify it.
6As for that night, let darkness seize upon it; let it not be joined unto the days of the year, let it not come into the number of the months.
7Lo, let that night be solitary, let no joyful voice come therein.
8Let them curse it that curse the day, who are ready to raise up their mourning.
9Let the stars of the twilight thereof be dark; let it look for light, but have none; neither let it see the dawning of the day:
10Because it shut not up the doors of my mother’s womb, nor hid sorrow from mine eyes.
11Why died I not from the womb? why did I not give up the ghost when I came out of the belly?
12Why did the knees prevent me? or why the breasts that I should suck?
13For now should I have lain still and been quiet, I should have slept: then had I been at rest,
14With kings and counsellors of the earth, which build desolate places for themselves;
15Or with princes that had gold, who filled their houses with silver:
16Or as an hidden untimely birth I had not been; as infants which never saw light.
17There the wicked cease from troubling; and there the weary be at rest.
18There the prisoners rest together; they hear not the voice of the oppressor.
19The small and great are there; and the servant is free from his master.
20Wherefore is light given to him that is in misery, and life unto the bitter in soul;
21Which long for death, but it cometh not; and dig for it more than for hid treasures;
22Which rejoice exceedingly, and are glad, when they can find the grave?
23Why is light given to a man whose way is hid, and whom God hath hedged in?
24For my sighing cometh before I eat, and my roarings are poured out like the waters.
25For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.
26I was not in safety, neither had I rest, neither was I quiet; yet trouble came.
– things he feared or spoke became real to him.
– Surround yourself with people who are positive & not always negative.
– Rebuke the negative
– Ask yourself if someone is rebuking you.
– Speaking into existence
– Tell God he has authority.
– God will not act on Earth unless you speak it.

Jacob’s Ladder
– Speak your prayers
– Praying outloud/reading outloud to see power.
– You can not fight Satan mentually.
Problem – Verses – Pray
