Don’t Give Up

On this life’s journey we will face trials, we will face loss, we will face heart aches and pain. And if we are honest, none of the above feel good at all. Why? Our human nature or flesh hates change, it despises pain, therefore; there will be a conflict between the earthly and the heavenly. Reality is, it doesn’t feel good, we become weary and discouraged and we feel like giving up.

So to the one who is weary and tired of the battle, I speak life and encouragement to you and May these words from Isaiah 41:10 be like a breath of fresh air to your weary soul: Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with My righteous right hand.

To the one who finds themself in a situation where it appears all you do is unnoticed and unappreciated. Please listen and hear these words: But as for you, be strong; don’t be discouraged, for your work has a reward.” 2 Chronicles 15:7

To the one who is struggling, you are Not Alone, God loves you beyond what you can possibly imagine. And may I encourage you to keep going, keep your eyes on the Heavenly Prize. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Galatians 6:9

And to all of you may you receive a fresh anointing from God as you serve Him in whatever way He has called you. May you be the hands and feet of Jesus to everyone you meet. May it be through His eyes that we see every person we meet.

Keep shining, and Don’t ever Give up!!

To the One who is… 

Our hearts hurt, our emotions are raw, our mind is reeling with a hundred different questions, but somehow words cannot possibly express what we feel. We look outside and the world doesn’t stop, the road is still filled with traffic, the stores in town still open, and the clock ticks onward. Our feeble minds cry out, “how can things possibly go on, don’t they realize just how much it hurts?”

To the one who is hurting, I cannot take the hurt away, but I am sorry for the pain you feel, my heart aches for you and with you. May God’s loving arms be wrapped around you and May God’s presence be more real then ever before. Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13

To the one who is grieving, I am sorry for the loss you have experienced, my heart cries with you. I can’t possibly not fathom the ache you feel from losing someone dear to you. But I know that Abba Father in heaven cares deeply for you and He loves you beyond measure. Look at how great a love the Father has given us that we should be called God’s children. And we are! 1 John 3:1 HCSB

To the one who is questioning “Why”, I pray that God would reveal specific things to you, and May the Holy Spirit bring comfort and peace to your heart, mind, and spirit. May God be the One whom you run to in the tempest and the trial.

To the one who is weary in Body, soul and spirit. I speak encouragement and life into you, May your eyes be fixed on Jesus and may His Holy Spirit bring rest to your soul. But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:30

To the one who feels all alone, like no one could possibly feel what you are feeling. I speak to you, these precious words: “Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you, yes, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

So whatever you are experiencing, my heart aches with you, and tonight may God’s loving hand begin the healing process in your current experience. I pray a blessing of comfort and peace upon you,and may you experience rest, sweet rest that comes only from God who loves you and cares about you!!

You are Loved and your Name is written upon the palms of the Father!

Blessings,

To Every Mother 

  Just coming through Mother’s Day and I having the special privilege to celebrate my own dear mama.  I was reflecting on how special Mothers really are and how they are so worthy of being celebrated.  I personally have the privilege of having many dear friends who are Mothers and it is such a blessing to me, watching them serve and love their children.  Motherhood is such a high calling andd today, I want to bless you in your calling.

   So to the Mother who is exhausted and spent, because she was up most or all night taking care of her child that would not sleep because of sickness or whatever the case may be. God has given you this child to nurture, love and care for, and you are doing this to the best of your ability.  May God be your strength and remember in God’s word He says: My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.   2 Corinthians 12:9   

  To the Mother, who has lil ones that always want to ‘help and yet it would be faster if you just did it yourself.  You give those precious lil hands an opportunity to help you and in the process, you are making memories with your lil ones that will last a lifetime. May God bless you richly with much patience, love, and wisdom for these precious souls He has gifted you with.   

  To the Mother who wonders if her son or daughter will ever ‘get it’ , be it a math problem or something else they are attempting to learn.  You as their parent, have the special privilege of encouraging them and teaching them to not give up.         And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.                         Galatians 6:9

   To the Mother who is wondering whether it really matters or if anyone notices what she does daily.  May I just say Thank You, thank you for serving your family, thank you for loving the way you do, thank you for not giving up, thank you for being a shining example to those around you.  May God renew your Spirit and may His loving arms be a warm embrace to your heart. 

  To the Mother who has taken in the ‘orphans’ and loved them as your own, to you I say, Thank you, it blesses me to see You taking others under your wing and loving them as they were your very own. May God richly bless you for your kindness and love.  

  To the Mother whose heart is burdened for her child, because of choices they have made.  Please don’t ever stop praying for them, a Mama’s prayers and her unconditional  love have spoken loudly to many a prodigal son and daughter.          The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.                        James 5:16 

 To all Mothers, thank you for all you do, Serving, Loving, and being amazing! Your example of being Jesus speaks loudly and I appreciate you.  May God continue to give you strength, courage, wisdom and much love as you continue in life, you truly are an inspiration! 
Blessings,

Vinny
