Broken Into Perfection

Broken Into Perfection – YouTube

 

  • When we look at being BROKEN it means to reduce to fragmentsGod is trying to reduce your past to fragments.
  • It also means out of working order, interrupted, disrupted or disconnectedGod has shown you that you have been out of His working order but it is now time to lay hold of Christ and move as God says move. There is no more room for interruptions or disconnections.
  • Broken also means weakened in strength and spiritPsalm 51:17 says the sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and a contrite heart. And Psalm 34:18 says the Lord is near to those who have a broken heart and saves such as a contrite spirit. So when your heart and spirit has been broken the Lord is right there, near you waiting for you to reach for Him so that He can save you.

When God is processing us we look for God to fix things in our time but we must wait on the Lord for His timing. We must learn to have patience in this process of perfection.

James 1:3,4 says Knowing that your testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work that you may be perfect and complete lacking nothing. God wants you to be in a place where you are not empty and there are no voids in your life. It is the Lord who makes us whole. We must patiently wait on the Lord to fulfill our process.

So when God is breaking us into perfection it takes time for this process to happen.

  • To be broken also means to make a way through, to penetrate. Which mean that when you allow yourself to be broken into perfection the Holy Spirit is breaking through your spirit and when God gets finish you will not be deficient in your heart and in your spirit. You will be full and complete in the spirit.

So, while you are going through your process of being Broken Into Perfection, be patient and wait on the Lord as He takes you to being whole and complete in Him.

I Arose a Mother

Mothering is more than being a mother for my own children but also to those who God connects me to. 


Deborah was used by God to be “a mother in Israel”. The children came to her seeking her judgement, her advice. She was a woman who carried words of wisdom, she was fair in her judgement. She was a woman of strength and great leadership. She was a woman of God. She was an encourager and was willing to stand on the front lines with Barak to fight for what God said needed to be done. In Barak’s weakness she showed him strength. She pushed him and poured into his life the Word of God and covered him during the process. She walked through the entire process with him, lifting him up in his calling. Deborah was there when they were oppressed and she was there when they got victory. God used her to bring peace through the process of war and to bring people out of bondage.


Allow God to use you when He calls you to cover another child of God. Be the mother He calls you to, it may be a battle and you may go through a war but know the peace of the Lord is upon you. Stand in your strength and have the courage to persevere and be bold in the Word of God.

Who has God called you to mother?

Are you answering to the call?

Arise, mother in the Lord!!!!!!

-L. Marie

Life’s Waves

The earth and everything in it, the world and its inhabitants, belong to the Lord; for He laid its foundation on the seas and established it on the rivers.”Psalms 24:1-2 HCSB

By our foundation being laid on the seas and established on rivers, the Lord lets us know that it may get a little rocky sometime. Just as river turn and twists our life will get a little twisty. As altitudes change, we will have up and downs as we go through life. Some bodies of water are more dense than others so some days we may feel like we are floating and others days not so much. As the temperature changes in water, some days may be a little colder than others. Even in your coldest moments there is healing. We will have moments where we feel like life has just thrown us over a waterfall, as we fall and get to what we believe is our bottom we will tumble and hit a few rocks but then the Lord will come and carry us through. Because He is our life preserver, He will preserve life even when we can’t see ourselves worth saving.
So your waters of life may become choppy and rough but know that the raft of the Lord will help you ride the waves.

The Inspirational Word

For the joy of the Lord is your strength. -Nehemiah 8:10

Lord, some mornings I wake up ready to go! I feel rested and energetic. Other mornings, I wonder how I will make it through the day. Remind me that as Your child, I have a power source that is always available to me. I may not always feel joyful, but the joy of the Lord is my strength. As I spend time in Your Word, renew my strength, I pray. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Know that you can always find your strength in the Lorz. You may have days that seem to drag on but when you lean on the Lord, He will give you a strength to make it through and energy to keep you. When you plug into His source, you don’t need to worry about His charge dying out.

Be Bless

Amazing Forgiveness

  
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace. -Ephesians 1:7

Jesus was the perfect and final sacrifice for us. He paid a price, His life for us so that we would be no longer enslaved, giving us freedom. Due to Jesus shedding His blood, we have been forgiven. When you are saved God voluntarily and lovingly finds favor in you with His grace. We cannot save ourselves and we cannot earn salvation. When we ask the Lord for His forgiveness, because of His love we are forgiven and He shows us favor that we do not deserve 

  Lord, I come into Your presence, thanking You for forgiveness. In a culture where many experience clinical depression because of guilt, I can know my past is redeemed because of Christ’s sacrifice for me. Your forgiveness is so amazing. Although I don’t deserve it, You pour it out freely and lovingly. Because You have seen fit to pardon me, I bless Your name today…….Amen

Grace For Everything

  

But He gives us more grace. -James 4:6

God is always giving us more grace. When we so wrong and say the wrong things, He gives us grace. We go through trials and tribulations and we may not be acting as we should, He gives us grace. When we ask Him for forgiveness, He gives His grace. He continue to give us chance after chance. Because of His grace we are able to continue striving.

Before you pray this prayer think of those that God wants you to give grace to. We all need it though we don’t deserve it.

Father, I am thankful for Your grace- Your unmerited favor to me through Jesus Christ, and that special strength You give Your child in times of need, trial, and temptation. If not for Your grace, I wouldn’t even be able to approach You. Thank You for extending favor to me: forgiving my sins and adopting me into Yout family. Thank You so much for that extra dose of perseverance that You keep giving to me in tough situations. I’m so thankful Your resource center will never experience a shortage. I praise You today for grace. Amen.

The One Who Is

  
Heavenly Father, today I’m grateful for all You are – the God who is, the God of the living, the Great I Am. Your character is unchanging. You are the epitome of perfect holiness and love. Because of who and all You are, I believe and trust in You. Your truthfulness is indisputable and Your power is established. Not just for the majestic works by Your hand but for the pure glory of Your nature – I worship You today. Amen

Who is like the Lord our God, who dwells on high? Psalm 113:5

I Thank You

img_7579

Sometimes we need to take the time and just say thank You. So often we tell God what we want and what our heart desires are and we forget to just take the time out and thank Him for all that He has done and continues to do. Could you imagine if the people who are around you just asked and begged for stuff from you and they never took the time out to be grateful and show you gratitude? How often do we do the Lord that way. As my husband always says,

“When you open your eyes in the morning, that is two reasons to thank the Lord.”                     -Pastor TD Glaster

Don’t forget to just say thank you and take the time not to ask the Lord for anything.
