It’s Not Yours!

Ownership is the act, state, or right of possessing something  . Most of us consider ownership a great accomplishment, owning your first car, first house, your first pet, your business,  etc.. Ownership brings a since of achievement. Once we claim ownership of something we can boldly say that is mine I paid for that, I have the title to that car or that house. Ownership is a great thing, however in our lives in Christ some things God does not want us to own, it is Not Yours! A lot of things we take ownership of do not belong to us, however we continue to say my depression, my headache, my arthritis, my high blood pressure, my cancer, my addiction, my eating disorder, MY,MY,MY! IT’S NOT YOURS, send all these things back to the pits of hell where they belong. Why do we take ownership of such things? Yes sickness and disease come but it is not ours, I don’t want to own any of these things. Jesus suffered, bleed and died on the cross so that none of these thing are ours. When we take ownership of something we take care of it, we pay special attention to it, we want other people to enjoy these things with us. Most of the things we take ownership of make us happy, feel good about ourselves. When was the last time you heard some one say I am so happy I own my cancer now, I feel great! No cancer does not make you feel good about owning it and neither does any other sickness or disease so why would we want to own anything that can destroy our lives, make us feel bad, and cause pain and agony for our families.  Do not take ownership of it at all, take ownership of your Joy, your Peace and your Wholeness , your healing! IT IS YOURS!!!!!

John 10:10King James Version (KJV)
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Isaiah 53:4King James Version (KJV)
4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

1 Peter 2:24King James Version (KJV) 24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

Prayer

Lord forgive us for taking ownership of the wrong things, Lord help us to take ownership of the abundant life you have promised us in you.

In Jesus Mighty name we pray

Amen

In his Strength

Begin Again

Philippians 1:6Amplified Bible (AMP)
6 I am convinced and confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will [continue to] perfect and complete it until the day of Christ Jesus [the time of His return].
Greetings!
Here I am on a beautiful Saturday afternoon beginning again what I have thought about and longed to resume since January. Well here it is August and so much has happened since I last wrote. On October 7, 2015 the Lord laid upon my heart to start a weekly women’s devotional as an extension to a women’s outreach ministry called Titus’2’women. The devotional was called “Wonderful Wednesday Word for Women.” The devotional was sent out via text and email to over 50 women. Well since January I have lost my brother to kidney cancer and  a very special aunt to liver cancer. The last devotional I sent was titled “2017 Strong”. My brother and I discussed in one of our last conversations about who we were strong in, I would ask him who are you strong in, and his response to me was a bold “In The Lord”. After my brother passed away in Feb, there were several times that I tried to “begin again”, I knew I needed to get back to what I knew I was called to do, encourage others, but I could not seem to muster up the strength. Not relying on God’s strength I continued to procrastinate and make excuses. My aunt passed in April and that seemed to be another set back, but I know that she would have encouraged me to press on and do what the Lord wanted me to do. She was one of my greatest encouragers. During the time I was not writing there was one of my mom’s best friends who would often tell my mom how much she missed getting the devotionals and that would really encourage me, the devil would try to inject his lies ” no one really wanted to get those devotionals any way”; However I knew if those devotionals only touched one person then my labor was not in vain. So here I am today to begin again, to touch at least one person, to encourage, to inspire, to cheer them on to begin again. No matter how many times you have to begin again, just do it. Galatians 6:9 Amplified Bible (AMP)  Let us not grow weary or become discouraged in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap, if we do not give in.  As I begin again, I decided to take a new venture to reach people, and this time not just women, even though that is my passion to reach women especially the younger women. My aim now is not only to encourage women  and be an example as Titus 2 teaches , but to also reach out to all. I also decided to take on a new venture with this blog, my very first. I pray that all who visit this post will be inspired to live life with the strength, love and joy of the Lord.
Prayer for us
Lord bless us to always persevere and not become weary in well doing help us all Lord to Begin Again!
In Jesus name
Amen
In his Strength
