Today was an interesting day, I was reminded of a couple of things.
It started off at church. The sermon was about the parable of the seed. I encourage you to read the parable in Mark 4. Today I was reminded that perhaps I have kept myself so busy with things of the world. Overwhelmed by worries about all the things I have to do and all the things I want to get that the stress has strangled me.
Stress strangles the seed cast in the weeds and nothing comes of it.
I was reminded that I was going to have to take the time to prepare myself for the word in order for it to have full effect in my life.
Today I was reminded of prophesies over my life that I have forgotten & hidden deep in my heart that I thought had become redundant and void. I was reminded of the passion to worship with my body and the word that was spoken over my life while I was in high school. For so long I have held on to the lies of the enemy.
I was reminded of the much needed healing
I was reminded that I need to cast my worries, fears, failure and guilt on Him – who has taken care of all of that a long time ago by dying on a cross. I was reminded that He has healed me. I was reminded that all I had to do was accept His forgiveness, turn to God from my “idols”. And I accepted His healing!
I was reminded that I did not have to be afraid
I was reminded that I can allow God to penetrate the deepest parts of my heart and fill it with Light. I was reminded that I can allow God to make with my life what He feels best, because my best attempts at life turns out to be royal stuff ups.
I have made the decision to give up and allow Him to heal. I have invited Him into my heart to make it home.
I was reminded that I am no longer a slave.
But I am a child of God. I was reminded that I am a daughter of God, delivered from my enemy and that I will sing my freedom song.
I was reminded that I needed to be a doer of the word in order for it to have full effect
I was reminded that I needed to leverage my every situation and prove myself as a doer of the word. I was reminded that I still have my free will and every day I still need to choose to be a doer of the word and an example to the world.
“For the person with creative potential there is no wholeness except in using it.”

Today I was reminded of who I am.
If you feel like me, I invite you to find out who you are. If you will, pray with me?
Thank you Jesus that you have saved me. Thank you that you have chosen me as Your vessel. Thank you for saving me by Your grace and for delivering me from my enemies. Thank you for healing my heart. Thank you for making me whole. Father, transform me. Help me to renew my mind daily. I accept Your healing. I welcome You home, into my heart.
