Encouragement to the heart!


       Good Morning my lovely followers. How are you doing this morning? Well I am doing pretty good this morning. I had my average morning of college, I got out 1 hour early today because we had an exam, and I'm pretty sure I did well on it because I wasn't able to put studying and school first last week because It was overall just a drama filled week with some family members. I had my share of tears just I am back to myself, because I had to just breath and start this week over with Joy of the Lord! I actually had time today to write this blog post and that's a blessing from God because life throws so much at us, and responsibilities come first, and then the social and fun like writing a blog in my eyes.

Well the reason I write this post this morning is because as I was sitting in my night class last night I got a lot laid on my heart so I just wrote it in my Journal. And it seemed beneficial for sharing with my followers. So Here it goes!

     Life throws us unexpected things sometimes but I encourage you all not to give up. Through every trial GOD brings a blessing out of it and we can't give up on our life because that's what the enemy wants us to do don't give in to the enemy's actions is so not worth. Some things the enemy gives us is signs of fear and discouragement. He also makes you feel unloved, worthless, and the thing I battle with most is the feeling of being unloved but that is the hugest lie the enemy can give you. First off once you are saved by the Grace of God you and I are a new creation in Christ Jesus. He shows and proves to use that we are unconditionally loved full of peace, and Joy lives in our hearts. Sometimes God gives his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers. Remember to stay strong through the storm though. Satan is the one that tells you that everything will get harder and harder but you have to remind Satan how big your God is. Cast every thought which is negative straight back to the pit of hell where it belongs. I as christian a strong believer of Christ is not perfect and mistakes do happen in my life. But you can repent and ask God for forgiveness because God forgives (7X70). He believes  in you and remember that he forgets about your pasts too. As a believer you should not dwell on your past. "Cast all your anxieties on the Lord because he cares for you" 1st Peter 5:7..... Through every trial don't give up because "All things are possible through Christ who strengthens you" Phillipians 4:13...... The victory of God is yours My lovely followers.  I hope that encouraged your hearts if you are struggling and fighting off the enemy today.

GOD should be our strength through every area of our life and remember to always trust him, because he never fails us.              
                                                     Never give up on your Dreams!

Oh the Chaos!

Cast all your anxieties on the Lord for he cares for you// 1st peter 5:7

Hello my dear Followers!
First off I wanted to let you know im sorry that I haven't been able to do a blog post lately. With college, Family Problems, and overall life I just kinda wasn't able to sit down and do one. So as I sit here in my chair, and as I have been fighting with discouragement this week I haven't gave up because the greater one lives in me. I have been reminded many times this week to hold on, and the battle was hard. Today is the first day I was able to force myself to rejoice. Yesterday happened to be my breakdown day, as I watched a horrible fight take place, I lost it and had a nervous break down with tears and all. Not only that cops had to be involved and my life was not in the right place. But I am personally thankful for my spiritual mother who I immediately called in tears, and she had me go over so I could get calmed down. You may not know how much a hug means to me, but it means the world to me. Just the comforting hug can change my mood. I am so thankful for even when we feel faithless, God is still faithful. He never gives up on us even in our darkest battle. The verse that keeps me standing through this chaotic week "All things are possible through Christ who strengthens me" //Phil 4:13. When you have to give a family member a break because they keep bringing you into a violent situation. The only thing you can do is trust Jesus, and give the care up to him because that's the only thing we can do to find peace in it. It breaks my heart knowing that the world is such a dark place, but the thing that gives me hope personally is because I'm a light and the greater on lives in me. Don't give in to discouragement, its not of God! That's the enemy coming only to kill, steal , and destroy.


All of those have encouraged me this week during my struggle, but I didn't give up!

It was short and sweet for this post but, my words aren't complete until I get this burden off my heart.

I love you all, and I thank you for being  you.

With Love- Sarah

Overwhelmed with Joy!

     Okay my dear followers, as a little bit of tears fall down right now because I let discouragement into my heart. Someone told me that I was ugly today because acne has taken the best of me lately. It happened to be a family member too, and it shook me up pretty hard but I found my hope in Jesus. I brushed it off and didn't say anything to the person who told me that, but truth is if someone tells you that its going to offend you especially us girls. But I thought to myself and was reminded that God made us all beautiful and even with flaws. Nobody but his son Jesus is perfect. As I was reminded by a sweet Christ sister of mine this evening with some uplifting words it made me rejoice. Don't let any of those awful words hurt your heart because it is a lie from the pit of hell. Words of discouragement is not for me and not for you either if your a born again christian. "You are beautiful, you are precious says the Lord" Can I share a little story with you? Well anyways I was praying for this girl and her name started with an A, and I knew her full name in my spirit, but the crazy thing is I didn't know who it was. But later that night I was having a good talk with one of my Christ sisters who had a sister who was being attacked by the enemy. I asked this friend if her sisters name started with the letter A, and then I said her name, and It was just so inspiring to me because God uses us to bless people so unexpectedly sometimes, even if it is for a complete stranger. Oh how I wish I could explain it so more in dept, but the Lord said I've shared enough so I will keep it at that. I received such an inspiring word with this Lovely lady and it makes me teary eyed every time I have been reminded of it. It leaves such a Joyful feeling in my heart. I would like to tell this girl if she is one of the Lovely ladies who is going to read this post, I want to remind her that she has hope for a brighter day, The Lord is telling me that he is going to bless you because you didn't fall into the demonic attack as somebody else did. You are going to prosper and are going to give your complete trust to Jesus because he see's your struggles and wants to bless you completely if you let him. Hold on to your dreams, better things are coming gorgeous. Just know you may not personally know me, but soon its coming. Be blessed. Your sister is your connection right now! Don't give up Lovely.  That will only make sense to one person who reads my blog or maybe 2.

"Blemishes are just something in our Glorious look"

I want to personally thank my dear friends for being so encouraging and uplifting to me! You are all precious and dear to my Heart.

"We can't walk by what we see"

"You are well able to overcome"

"If you call it hard it will be hard, call it sweet and easy" 

"We can't allow difficulty and unbelief to get on the inside"

                 I find hope when I reread this letter! So comforting, hand written letters bring Joy to my heart. I adore the lovely Gem who sent this to me. 

 I'm finding comfort right now with the presence of Jesus on my side! I love you sweet people who have gotten to know me. 

                                                         It brings me so much hope!
I had tears when I sang this song this morning, so comforting!

My Best friend!

I am praying for revival over this city today, and that discouragement leaves, its not of God. Im praying for healings today! Love you all!

Hey lovely people!
Just sitting here thinking about some things and fighting with some flu like symptoms. Thankyou for the sweet words and prayers my dear friends.
"You are Loved, You have a promise in this life, Hold on" - Sarah Elizabeth

As this day got started I barely had any strength to move, but that didn't stop me to give my heart to start my day in the word and eat some lovely pineapple before I was off to start my day as a college student. I have noticed if I dont put God at the start of my day then I have missed out on so many blessings throughout the day.  It's been awhile since I've actually got out and did something fun rather then the ordinary life of college and being sick the week of Valentines day. I always have so much fun on valentines day, even though I dont have a significant other, thats not what Valentines day is all about in my eyes. Valentines day is the day to be loving, and kind to everyone. I choose not to be down and depressed because you know why? "JESUS is my love right now" and when the time is right a significant other will come in. But ladies we have to be patient, rather your single, or already married. Patience is key to finding a true love besides Jesus because Jesus is our first Love. "Love is patient" Remember that key three words as it says in the bible. Ladies we are all daughters of a king, and that is one of the most precious reminders we can give ourselves. Say this "I am a daughter of the most high God"  As most of you will get caught up in a moment tomorrow, remember God is saving someone special, make sure its the special one.

Word of God!

     Hey my sweet followers, I know I haven't been posting much lately, but full time in college has a lot of priorities. But As Im sitting here doing some college work, the Lord laid it on my heart to right a blog post since Im feeling kind of alone at the moment. But let me tell you that's a lie from the enemy, we may feel alone, but something I want to tell you, if Jesus lives in you your never alone. That's something everybody struggles to remember, but thats okay, I have those moments too. But if the Lord lives with us, who should be against us! Something I want to share with you guys about starting your day in the word (By word if you do not know, I mean reading your bible) or just praising God! The blessings it gives you through out your days is just over all amazing, and I thank God for it every second. It brings your heart joy, peace, love, and comfort throughout your day. Starting the Word first in your day means you choose God first and isn't that overall a true blessing. I think about that on a daily basis now. The enemy really leaves you alone once you up your word dosage too. I currently was offered a Job this week, still waiting to hear back, but how it happened was just a God moment and overall amazing. It was definitely what we would call favor. Us believers have favor over the rest of the world because Jesus lives in us,Amen! "Always be joyful in the Lord! I'll say it again: Be Joyful!!" Philippians 4:4.
A word that I recieved last night at church. And I thought I'd share it with you guys.

"Repent to where you once belonged to get your peace, if your not at peace. Stop crying about it. We can keep our eyes on Jesus. Head of protection is over us. Meditate on the word day and night so you will prosper. If you live in Gods realm you are a victor not a victim of the world." Pastor Marcus

Some Scripture to share...

"May my thoughts be pleasing to him. I will find Joy in the Lord" - Psalm 104:34

"The Lord has become my stronghold. My God has become my rock of refuge" - Psalm 94:22

"Christ died for us while we were still sinners. This demonstrates God's love for us" - Romans 5:8

"God can do anything, if you simply will stop limiting him in your thinking" 

"Stay activated by not Worrying"
