The Key to My Heart

February has been the month to celebrate love ever since the Middle Ages. Valentines Day has become one of the most popular holidays among lovers and florists! The common symbols of Valentine’s Day include cupids, hearts, roses, candy, teddy bears, and words of adoration. Children exchange valentine cards decorated with current comic and cartoon icons. Adults have continued this tradition of card giving which makes this day, behind Christmas, the second largest card-sending holiday of the year. Cupids with bows and arrows represent Roman mythology. Cupid was the son of Venus, the goddess

Pursing Love – Love is Kind


Pursuing Love

We are in the second week of Pursing Love and this week’s topic is Love is Kind. Well, it’s taken me all week to write this post. I thought I was going to miss this one. When I reflect on what it means to be kind – to be friendly, generous and caring, I immediately think about the loving kindness the Lord has shown to me, and how I am instructed to model that kindness in every aspect of my life to those around me. For the most part, I am a kind person. I think that others would say that I am. But as I draw closer to the Lord, He is quick to reveal those areas in my life where my attitudes or actions do not align themselves with His. It is for my benefit that these areas are brought to the light so that I could fix them and look more and more like Jesus, which is my one goal in life. Lately, I’ve been asking the Lord to show me how to love well. Love starts by being kind. I fell in love with my husband because he was first kind to me. He was/is friendly, generous and caring. If it were not for his kindness in the early days of our relationship, I would not have fallen in love with him. There are many areas of my life where I feel I need to work on showing kindness to others. Here are a few:

Worship and the Power of Your Song

I was going through my journal today and found my notes from when Dan McCollam visited Convergence Supernatural School of Ministry back in March, 2009. I thought I would share some awesome insight he gave about the power of the song.

  1. A song delights the heart of the Father. God is looking for worshippers. Worship is for the delight of the Father.
  2. A song displaces the enemy and overturns atmospheres. (1 Samual 16:23) The battle is for air space, establishing air supremecy through worship.
  3. A song carries a breaker anointing that shatters chains and yokes of bondage.
  4. A song opens up atmospheres of supernatural encounters. (1 Samuel 10: 6; 19)
  5. A song refreshes, encourages and instructs the saints. (Eph. 5:17-19; Col. 3:16) Your experience will always rise to the level of your declaration. Songs have the power to shape mindsets. It’s not those who write the laws who shape a generation, but those who write songs.
  6. A song releases personal transformation. (2 Cor. 3:18; 2 Peter 1) Whatever you see in Him you can have in you. Whatever you behold, you become.
  7. A song activates the Kingdom of Heaven. If you want Heaven on earth, you must establish the same atmosphere as Heaven = Worship!

There is a song inside of you that only you can sing. It doesn’t matter how good you sing. God loves to hear your voice praising Him. Worship is a powerful tool. It brings us into the presence of the Lord and it sends the enemy to flight. On those days when I am finding it hard to pray, I simply put on worship music and I find myself with renewed strength

Do You Trust Him With Your Heart?

I‘ve been feeling impressed to read and begin meditating on Psalm 139. I absolutely love this scripture, because it reminds me that I was created by a loving and powerful God, and that He formed me perfectly. I am His great masterpiece! He delights in me and calls me GOOD! As a woman who still struggles at times understanding the depth of God’s love, this is always a refreshing read. Today, I’ve been chewing on the last few verses:

Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
Point out anything
