Have you ever heard someone say "I don't want to have false hope"? Have you ever thought that you had hope but then something triggered and you lost hope?
Do you know that His word says "hope is for things unseen, that if you hoped for things that could be seen -that is no hope at all". So hope is for the very things that we end up letting go for. When everything in the natural says "give up, it won't happen, it's not possible, I tried for too long and never saw", when circumstances in life seem to be the very opposite of what you hope for that is when it becomes hope and you anchor that hope so that it does not waver in the waves and storms. Hope is for when you can't imagine or see how it could be possible. There is no such thing as false hope.
Hope deferred makes the heart sick. It's not that the things in life didn't line up with our hope but that we put off hope this allowing an environment of toxins. Putting off hope makes us sick, it is the opposite of health and life. Sickness deteriates, breaks down, allows disease to reign, it attacks. If you were sick, you would seek out an antibiotic, healing supplements,rest, etc. Hope is the antibody for that.
Hope creates life,joy, delight, and anticipation. When we hope we also create a focus that makes us also act in that area as well as feel. We invest more into that area when we hope. Hope lays out a positive scenario for our future.
Hope pushes away negativity, hope creates and builds up, hope fosters health. Hope is a vision to walk in. A man without vision perishes. Hope is air to your spirit. It lifts up; above circumstances and feelings. Hope puffs you up, helps you to rise above and fly instead of trudging through trenches being weighed down.

Though I may say "my children", they are not my possession.

I have been debating sharing a recent journal entry and decided I just had too. If you have been through a divorce or started a blended family, this will be familiar yet I believe challenging when you read on. It is my hope that everyone who reads will gain and understanding and a greater capacity to love and accept, to understand that hurts also help us grow, and there is beauty in storms of life.

5/16/17 A journal could never contain all of my thoughts, feelings, and experiences. But wanted to take some time this early morning...
Yesterday was Chosen's 5th birthday and Jared's (turning 9) piano recital was also last night. I invited their father and his new wife, their "bonus mom", and their grandmother from his side also came along. We have such a large blended family, but we make it all work for the kiddos (and our own peace). I knew the children were going to be excited to see them, especially because they've been with me and my husband for the last handful of …

70+ Promises/Scriptures to declare, speak over yourself and pray.

There are over 3,000 promises in the bible God has declared for us.
So much about who we are and what He has for us can be found there. I've been through so many trials over a number of years,  and without learning about who He says I am and what some of His plans are for me, I may not have made it so far and still have a positive view.
Even though storms may be around still, I have to train my mind to be obedient to truth.
Here are some scriptual declarations that I pray over myself, and pray for others, or speak out loud as soon as I have a thought or feeling that is negative or the opposite.
I encourage you to seek them out in the bible as well.

I am a child of God.
He is for me, who can be against me?
He ,who is in me, is greater than he who is in the world.
I am the head and not the tail.
I am above and not beneath
I am a saint, not a sinner.
I am righteous by faith.
I am seated in heavenly places.
He lifts me up out of the miry clay and sets me upon His rock.
He is my refuge…

The Father Delights In You

Do you know how pleased the Father is with you? He delights in you. You cannot earn his love and affection!
Zephaniah 3:17 says the Lord your God is with you he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing!
Take peace of mind today that you are deeply loved, unconditionally and that the father dotes on you, that you have captured his heart and he smiles when he thinks of you❤️.
It does not matter anymore if you did not have an earthly father who loved you, doted on you, and took great delight in you. If you struggle to find acceptance in your relationships, if you feel like you have to constantly "do" in order to please people and earn their love and affection, if people have abandoned you,mistreated you, etc. Grab hold of the truth that you cannot be any more loved than you already are, you are more than accepted... you are affirmed as his daughter in whom he delights so much that it causes him …
