We wept in prayer together before dinner last night, thanking God that all seats around our table were filled. The pain we feel for the families of those lost in this…what do you call an act that takes babies from their mamas and daddies? Evil. Evil, evil act. The pain we feel has no words. Just the moans of mourning.

We’re praying for change. We’re caring for the orphans and widows. We’re giving our tears freely to our Father. We’re lifting up every family triggered again by the trauma of losing their own babies in tragedies past. Oh Lord, comfort the broken-hearted. Hold them. Hold them.

We pray the families of this community come together to surround those suffering loss. That God will strengthen a devastated community through the love and support of family. #prayforuvalde #uvalde #prayforthefamilies

After sharing a prophetic word yesterday releasing an invitation from God to act in faith (see prior post) the enemy showed his hand. Watch the video for the whole word. There’s definitely an intentional thing happening in reaction to what God is about to do.

I sat with this burning in me all day and finally felt like I needed to run into my car where it was quiet and speak it out. It may feel like a bit of a ‘blahhhh’ of info so here are the four points I mention above to be (hopefully!!) helpful:

(𝟭) Renounce. Repent. Silence the voice of the enemy. Cancel his assignment. Send him away from you and don’t let him trespass again.
(𝟮) Identify and rip out the weeds of deception the enemy’s planted in the garden of your heart. Fill that now empty space with the truth of God – found in the Word, in your journaling, the prophetic words spoken over your life, people who know and see who God says you are.
(𝟯) Commit to a period of Romans 12:2 to renew your mind. Read/Write/Speak the truths every day until those seeds of truth take root again. Now you’ll recognize when that voice of doubt tries coming back and you can tell it where to go.
(𝟰) Pray for everyone else who is facing this very strategic and intentional attack. Seriously – it’s not more than any of us can handle, it’s just a matter of exposing what the enemy’s trying to do in secret.

You’re not alone. The whole body needs to fill the faith tank and leave all doubt behind as we move forward into this new era. It’s time to silence it completely and not give it an inch of space to take hold. I’m fired up about this because I believe God has good plans for us and don’t want anyone to miss what He’s doing – I love y’all too much!

Read the previous post for context.

“God’s wanting to encourage you of the authority that you have in him. Guarding your home; being the gate-keeper of your home. Don’t get complacent. The focus is not the enemy. The focus is establishing homes that the boundary lines of my home are set up by the word of the Lord.” – @lana_vawser_ministries

Whew the fear of man will keep you trapped in people-pleasing mode forever. You’ll never be liked enough, praised enough, accepted enough until you know how incredibly precious you are to God & the price He paid for you🙌🏽His love brings peace where fear tries to keep you a slave to people pleasing forever. Be free! Cause guess what- you aren’t just ‘liked’ by God – YOU ARE LOVED! Spread the word! #free #freedom #peoplepleaser #loved #youareloved #christiantiktok #spirituality #fear #theoffice

Praying for those hurting this Mother’s Day weekend🙏🏽♥️

We’re often asked what to do in challenging circumstances where there is division within a family: whether it’s husband and wife, parent and child, or even between siblings. Usually, a lot of prayer has already been had.

There’s something powerful that happens when we agree to fast as a family. We create a level ground upon which we’re all experiencing something circumstantially that unites us in the natural. We’re all sacrificing. We’re all hungry for something. What we do first in the natural causes a shift in the spiritual. God honors fasting. It’s an act we can do united as a family to bring spiritual unity for the sake of discernment, decision making, even healing. Fasting as a family brings us back into personal unity with God, and one another. It allows parents to lead by example and teach within our homes the biblical practice of fasting by doing it together.

It’s amazing what God will do when we take a step toward him on behalf of unity within our homes. #familyfast #familyunity

We love families moving together with a shared heart and shared purpose♥️🙌🏽 This beautiful fam reminds us to celebrate the love and joy of being together every single day🙏🏾🙌🏼 Love y’all – you’re a power house family for the kingdom of God, a pure reflection of His heart for family💥

“It’s time to live in your true identity: sons, daughters, parents rising up. Hollywood and God are showing us that it’s the family that we need right now. We need you to be a strong family.” – @sethdahl
