Beloved... My prayer for you today is that you will have a divine encounter with the Lord that changes your life forever...

Join me... Look back, power up, press forward... Today, I release a Victory Praise to the King of all Kings!! 

If it had not been for the Lord on my side, tell me where would I be... where would I be! He kept my enemies away; He let the sun shine through a cloudy day. He rocked me in the cradle of His arm when He knew I had been battered and scorned. (Hymn by Margaret P. Douroux. The Faith We Sing, No. 2053.)

O Lord, I never would have made it without you. When I look back at how far you have brought me from and all You have done for me... Lord, I praise you for steadfastly loving me... In hot pursuit of me, You redeemed me from the miry pit, fiery furnace, the lion's den, the prison, the dungeon... O Lord, You rescued me from the cave, from enemies that were too strong for me... The cell door is open... The chains are broken... The chains have fallen... and the Son set me free, free indeed... Hallelujah!

If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, now may Israel say; If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us: Then they had swallowed us up quick when their wrath was kindled against us: Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul: Then the proud waters had gone over our soul. Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth. Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped. Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth. ~ Psalm 124 (KJV)

O LORD, there is beauty in my brokenness, a dance in my mourning, a strength in my weakness, a light in my darkness, a smile through my tears, beauty for my ashes... double for my trouble... O LORD give me Faith to believe in You... Trust in troubles... Hope for the hopeless and helpless... Your unfailing faithful LOVE in lack... Your Stripes for sickness... Your Salvation for sin, shame, and sufferings... O GOD, overwhelm me with Your GLORY, GRACE, GOODNESS, GREATNESS, GLADNESS ... 

O LORD, my Shepherd, my Provider, my Healer, my Redeemer, my Deliverer, my Way-Maker... I'm prepared with a table before me in the presence of my enemies; I'm anointed with the oil of gladness above thy fellows... My cup overflows with the abundance... even my hard lean paths drip with fatness...

Though He slays me, yet will I trust Him. I will praise Him all day long...

"I will always thank the Lord; I will never stop praising Him. I will praise Him for what He has done; may all who are oppressed listen and be glad! Proclaim with me the Lord's greatness; let us praise His name together! I prayed to the Lord, and He answered me; He freed me from all my fears. The oppressed look to Him and are glad; they will never be disappointed. The helpless call to Him and He answers; He saves them from all their troubles. His angel guards those who honor the Lord and rescues them from danger.... 

Find out for yourself how good the Lord is. Happy are those who find safety with him.
Honor the Lord, all His people; those who obey Him have all they need. Even lions go hungry for lack of food, but those who obey the Lord lack nothing good. Come, my young friends, and listen to me, and I will teach you to honor the Lord. Would you like to enjoy life? Do you want long life and happiness? Then keep from speaking evil and from telling lies. Turn away from evil and do good; strive for peace with all your heart.

The Lord watches over the righteous and listens to their cries; but He opposes those who do evil so that when they die, they are soon forgotten. The righteous call to the Lord and He listens; He rescues them from all their troubles. Lord is near to those who are discouraged; He saves those who have lost all hope. Good people suffer many troubles, but the Lord saves them from them all; the Lord preserves them completely; not one of their bones is broken. Evil will kill the wicked; those who hate the righteous will be punished. The Lord will save His people; those who go to Him for protection will be spared."
~ Psalm 34 GNT

O LORD, thank you, O Lord, I never would have made it without you... O LORD, I found joy, peace, grace, favor, mercy, help... I'm freed, I'm healed, I'm saved, I'm spared, I'm blessed, I'm changed, I'm delivered, I'm stronger, I'm wiser, I'm better, I'm alive... ALL because of You, O LORD, Jesus Christ!! Your presence came and Your LOVE transformed me...


“In the same way, I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born,” says the Lord. “If I cause you the pain, I will not stop you from giving birth to your new nation,” says your God.”
— ~ Isaiah 66:9 NCV
He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
— ~ 2 Corinthians 12:9  (NKJV)
