Hang On

Good morning, beautiful people!  I trust that you had a great weekend and reveled in the resurrection of our Lord yesterday. What a wonderful revelation to know that Jesus overcame the grave. Not even death could hold him down. Let that truth settle into your soul as you think about where you are today and the vision it takes to fully walk in your purpose.

Are you looking at your situation and thinking that there’s no way out of the rut you’ve found yourself in or the pit you can’t climb out of? I ask you to imagine the abundant life that God has planned for you and to connect to the only one who can do all things but fail–almighty God, our rescuer and deliver.

Today as I reflect on the countless times he has rescued me, I’m also reminded of the woman with the blood issue in the bible.

43 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years, but no one could heal her. 44 She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped.

45 “Who touched me?” Jesus asked.

When they all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you.”

46 But Jesus said, “Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me.”

47 Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at his feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed.48 Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.” ~ Luke 8:43-48

Faith in God’s omnipotence is what you can bring to the table, and he will serve up a blessing that your mind can’t conceive. It’s amazing how deeply attuned he is to our heart’s desires: healing, love, freedom, a fresh start, a clean heart, or eternal life. He can do it. I’ve seen it firsthand. Ask him to reveal a snapshot of his plan for your life; I know it will blow your mind. Hang on a little longer, and feast your eyes on the banquet he has prepared for you. May blessings abound! ❤

Before you leave today, turn up the volume and get ready to move. I hope you enjoy my Music Monday selection by Kierra Sheard entitled “Hang On.”

I started this blog as a means of chronicling my journey of Servant Leadership, but I believe that it has taken on a deeper purpose. As visitors read about my every day experiences as seen through a spiritual lens, I know that they’ll take the meat of my messages — the scriptures — and nourish themselves. I’m sure they’ll remember the stories and get to know me as a result, but the anecdotes are merely the vessels that store the meat. My hope is that you find encouragement here, and when you do, please share it with me. Encouragers need encouragement too.

  1. Encouraging words. ‘Faith in God’s omnipotence is what you can bring to the table, and he will serve up a blessing that your mind can’t conceive. It’s amazing how deeply attuned he is to our heart’s desires: healing, love, freedom, a fresh start, a clean heart, or eternal life. He can do it.’
    This is what I strive for.
