What is Consuming You?
Let me let you in on a little something… always be aware of who is in your prayer circle and who are praying for you. My people know not only my heart, they know my spirit, and they are quick to set me straight and guide me. That’s what real spiritual mentors do, and I have the best!
I have thought a lot about what has been consuming my mind. I have realized that over the last couple of months, I have let some things totally consume my mind. Sometimes you cannot see things through your own eyes because the enemy is blocking your view. He is very conniving and seeks to destroy anyone that God loves, and I don’t want to give him any of my joy. PERIOD! I have a prayer circle and spiritual mentors that have been in my life for years. They have seen, prayed, and helped me and my family thought some of the darkest moments of my life!
I think that once you go through a massive loss followed by deep depression, your emotions are triggered easily. When I see injustice, my first instinct is to fight for who is being wronged or what is wrong. Which I have always done, and Yes, that is the right thing to do. However, it is not if I fight; it is HOW I fight. If we are fighting in such a manner that will pull us away from CHRIST, then is it a fight worth fighting? Is the fight worth that sacrifice? The Bible tells us, “What would it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul.” (Mark 8:36)
Can we make change happen, of course, we can! As I said, it is not when or if it is HOW. Can I invoke you to change if I alienate you? NOPE!
If you will please PRAY for me and I will PRAY for you!
On the prayer line this morning, we talked about praying for each other.
I Thessalonians states, “Now may the peace of himself sanctify you completely and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it. Brothers pray for us.” (5:23-25)
When we Pray for each other, things happen.
GOD will Answer our Prayers
When we pray for each other, the windows of Heaven pour down blessings upon us!
GOD will heal us
When we pray for each other, God’s healing power is activated, and miracles take place!
GOD will open doors for us to be used
When we pray for each other, God will use us in ways that we never would imagine!
GOD will grow us
When we pray for each other, God will grow us into who HE destines us to become!
GOD will lift our burdens
When we pray for each other, God will bear our burdens so and give us undeniable peace!
GOD will humble us
When we pray for each other, God will find our JOY in JESUS and HIM alone.
GOD will help us to overcome

Let’s continue to keep our world and each other lifted in prayer and covered in the WORD of GOD.
I love you all!
