My story…..

The silhouette of a warrior woman with storm clouds in the background.

“I love because HE first loved me.” (1 John 4:19 NIV_paraphrased)

Because……

HE didn’t toss me aside when I was marred. HE gave me another chance…..and another……and another…….

 Scripture for Today

But the jar that HE was forming didn’t turn out as HE wished, so HE kneaded it into a lump and started again!

(Jeremiah 18:4 TLB)

Dear God I want to thank You

Be Blessed,

Ain’t no perfect!

Erasers are made

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23 KJV)

Because……..nobody is perfect! Yep, that means you & me too!

Scripture for Today

I was born to do wrong,

a sinner before I left my mother’s womb.

You want me to be completely loyal,

so put true wisdom deep inside of me.

Remove my sin and make me pure.

Wash me until I am whiter than snow!

Let me hear sounds of joy and happiness again.

Let the bones you crushed be happy again.

Don’t look at my sins.

Erase them all.

God, create a pure heart in me,

and make my spirit strong again.

(Psalm 51:5-10 ERV)

Amen!

the first step towards change

Blessings,

Emma B.

You are NOT who they say you are!

Declaration for today…….

I am an overcomer

Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” (Romans 8:37 NKJV)

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Sometimes people try to ‘name’ us based on where we have been and how we used to be.

If this goes on long enough, we tend to forget our own names, and eventually accept what they call us!

Regardless of how we made it into this world Beloved, the fact that we are here indicates that God has a plan and purpose for our lives, ……independent of ‘them’!

HOWEVER……

Before we can walk into our Divine purpose and receive our Divine blessings, we must first reconcile with who God says we are, not who they say that we are!

In Genesis 32: 25-31, as Jacob wrestled with ‘God in human form’, he identified himself as a trickster when he was asked his name.

You see, Jacob implies deceitful/trickster……and technically, he was deceitful!

  • Jacob was deceitful…
  • His mother Rebekah before him was deceitful
  • His uncle Laban was deceitful….

It was one big family affair!

And since deceit ‘ran so deep in his veins’, he was ultimately conditioned to believe that that was who he was and that’s who he would ever be!

BUT GOD…..

Regardless of how low he felt about himself, ‘Deceitful’ was NOT who God created him to be…….

So God renamed him Israel which means ‘May God prevail’, saying……

“Your name will no longer be Jacob, but rather Israel, for you have struggled with God and with men, and you have overcome.” (Genesis 32:29 TLV)

So question for you Beloved…..

  • What is your name?

Be Blessed,

Emma B
