Psalm 103:12 (AMP) As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
When God forgives us He literally forgets it at the same time. He looks at us as blameless and holy since Jesus is what makes us righteous with God. Yet we tend to hold on to our past mistakes and go over them in our minds, over and over. We think that continuously apologizing for them somehow sets us right with God when we already are!

At this point the whole world seems to be on standby… However, that doesn’t mean that our health is! Social media has been a wonderful tool to get great ideas for home workouts and great motivation. Regardless of surrounding circumstances, your body will always be your responsibility, nobody else’s. Continue reading
I can truthfully say I’ve tried all types of diets and types of nutrition… From keto, to paleo, to vegetarian etc…
Bottom line, all of them are great if you can stick to it! Nutrition is truly the most important factor for your health, not how long you work out at the gym. However, what tops it all in true importance is dedication!!! Continue reading

1 John 4:13 (AMP) By this we know [with confident assurance] that we abide in Him and He in us, because He has given to us His [Holy] Spirit.
Regardless how dim your current circumstances may seem, regardless how hopeless it may all look, regardless how much it appears your prayers aren’t being answered, Trust Him! Know that our Heavenly Father is always working, even when we can’t see it. So resist the urge to question Him “why” and trust Him with an unshakable trust knowing He’s got your very best at heart. Then when you get your “suddenly” know that it’s due to Him having worked behind the scenes preparing all things ahead of time as they needed to be aligned!
James 3:18 (VOICE) The seed that flowers into righteousness will always be planted in peace by those who embrace peace.
Peace is the currency of Heaven! Each step that you take or consider taking, pause first, and take an inventory of your motive… The motives of our heart are so crucial for the outcome of our actions.
Even if someone hurt us, return your response to their action with peace and love! Our biggest weapon against enemy attacks is LOVE. Continue to sow love with peace, and righteousness will flow from it. You are God’s righteousness through Christ! Remember that.
Psalm 126:5 (NIV) Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy.
You have sown many tears over the years and too often you can’t see if it’s harvest will actually come, but know and trust that Papa is working even when we can’t see it. The waiting time that comes after planting the seed and having to water it and having no control over the weather conditions and how they will affect the crops while they grow is not in our control. That is however, the most important time. That’s when our faith and trust in the Father grows. Continue reading
Romans 6:1-2 (NLV) What does this mean? Are we to keep on sinning so that God will give us more of His loving-favor? No, not at all! We are dead to sin. How then can we keep on living in sin?
Peer pressure in today’s society is definitely a very sad reality. So often people excuse their choices by using “in today’s day” it’s just different, or they simply abuse God’s grace and mercy… Is that what scripture says to do? Surely not! Continue reading
Matthew 18:3 (NIV) And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
Children blindly trust their parents and are happy and full of joy when they’re simply hugged, kissed or are just near them. They don’t have any worldly worries or concerns because they know that their parents will take care of everything. Continue reading
Matthew 17:20 (NIV) He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
So often we are challenged on how big our faith is and more often than not we doubt our faith. Yet it’s written so clear that faith just as big as a mustard seed can move mountains.
In this life we will be faced with multiple mountains and our faith will be put to the test. At that moment we simply need to remember that no matter how small our faith may seem, it has the potential to grow as we keep facing mountains and witness them be moved by our faith and our Heavenly Father is right by our side cheering us on!!!
