I had a phenomenal weekend hanging out with my beautiful Sorors of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc for my 1st Founders Day Celebrations! We celebrated 106 glorious years of our sisterhood! If you know me, then you know this is definitely a dream come true for me. It was thirty plus years in the making!
This morning I heard such a good word on both of my prayer lines, so I just had to share!
Many of you know I love music and I love to sing. One of my favorite songs that we sing in church is called, “Trading my Sorrows”
I’m trading my sorrows
And I’m trading my shame
And I’m laying it down
For the joy of the Lord
And I’m trading my sickness
And I’m trading my pain
I’m laying it, laying it, laying it down
For the joy of the Lord
I’m pressed but not crushed
Persecuted, not abandoned
Struck down but not destroyed
And I am blessed beyond the curse
For His PROMISE will endure
That His joy is going to be my strength
Though my sorrows may last for the night,
His joy comes with the morning
The words to this song have taken special meaning to me in the past few years.
I can tell you from my own life experiences, I have has my share of difficulties in these past few years but I can tell you this…
I am never defeated, dejected, hopeless, or destroyed. God plucked my out of the darkness, where I wanted to stay and die, and HE broke through that curse of depression that the enemy tired to place over my life. I prayed and I read GOD healing words of love, redemption, and his promises to me.
Minister Kai told us to “Stand on the word of GOD and let it bless you.” He said, “Let the word do what it is going to do.”
“So is my word that goes out from my mouth: it will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. (Isaiah 55:11)
Meaning, wait on the LORD and let his word accomplish its purposes for our life.
My Sis Aisha Dudley said in our team prayer this morning, we are NOT to focus on our problems for put our energy and our focus towards the PROMISES of GOD.
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. (Hebrews 10:23)
No matter what the enemy throws at us, no matter what it may looks like, no matter what it may feel like we have to focus on the PROMISES of the LORD and know that HE has already won the victory! Without LORD, we can accomplish nothing. He has HIS plans for our life already laid out for us we just need to continue to hold on and believe that with God NOTHING is impossible.
I know that my LORD PROMISES:
And so much more (read HIS Word)
Jesus replied, “What is impossible with man is possible with GOD. (Luke 18:27)
I can testify that my sorrows may have lasted for a night but HIS amazing, remarkable, supernatural, joy always come in the morning! I have traded all my sickness, shame, worry doubt, and I have laid it down for the JOY of the LORD
Have a Blessed Day in the LORD
I love you all!
