Sunday Praise And Worship


"When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him." (Isaiah 59:19) : This past week was a rough one for me, the two year anniversary of my mommas passing away. It was filled with many memories, and tears. My heart was very heavy all week, sadness surrounded me. The enemy came in, and tried to carry me back into that deep black hole of hellish depression. The enemy reminded me of how I use to cut myself to relieve my intense sorrow and pain, and he tried to tempt me to hurt myself once again. But, my precious Lord came to my rescue as always. He lifted me up out of the murky waters that I was swimming around in, and set my feet back on solid ground. He reminded me of His great love, and care for me. I sat in His lap, and rested for awhile. I am no longer filled with sadness, but instead, sweet peace. Greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world. Thank You Lord, I love You.

I'm so thankful you are combating Satan's lies with the Truth!

Sitting on our Daddy's lap and listening to His heartbeat with love for us is the best place to find rest, peace and the Truth about who He says we are and what He thinks about us.

Thank you for all your precious prayers for me the last few days. I've been lifting you up as well all this past week.

Love you!
