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

For His Glory

It’s all for the glory of the Lord. We look at things and wonder what is going on and why is this happening but all things come from God, all things go through God and all things go to God…. For His glory. There is a purpose for everything and God gets the glory from all of it. It may seem like you’re in a dark place and in this second may seem dark but trust God. He knew you would be facing this thing right now and He knew it would get dark for you but in you dark moment when you trust God, His light will shine on you. He will show you the way. He will light up your path and you will see the purpose for which your moment was dark. Trust Him when you feel like you can’t trace Him. You may feel like you don’t have a praise left but praise God anyhow and watch your darkness turn to light. There is even purpose in your pain. There will be healing for your sickness, there will be restoration for your drought. God got you, just trust Him.

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.

Life or Death?

Often times people say things and do not realize the depth of their words and how they affect the person they are talking to. Some people are in abusive relationships due to being in an abusive childhood environment. Mental and emotional abuse is the worse because you cannot see the scars and it takes longer to heal from those things. Children and adults have lived with depression due to the things that are said to them and some have even committed suicide.

Some are abusive because they were abused in their childhood. There are some individuals that do not know how to deal with their own emotions and have bottled them up for such a long time. They become the abuser because they refuse to let someone take advantage of them and they refuse to let others see their own hurt and pain.

There is power in the words that are spoken. How you choose your words are very important and the tone in your voice speaks volumes. You can choose to tear someone down or to build them up. Don’t allow wicked things to come out of your mouth, Proverbs 12:13 states that, The wicked is ensnared by the transgression of his lips, but the righteous will come through trouble. When you say mean things to a person, you will be caught by your own words. The words you are choosing God will judge you by. You cannot be mean to someone and think that God will not hold you accountable for your own actions, including your words. Matthew 12:34 states, ….. For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. So, when you speak evil, therefore, the heart is evil. When you live a life with Christ the heart is transformed and our words are changed.

When you speak kind words you will hear kind echoes. -Pastor James Robins

A man’s stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth; from the produce of his lips he shall be filled -Proverbs 18:20.  When you begin to speak life and build a person up, you are producing good fruit. Death does not grow but when you begin to pour life into someone it will begin to grow. As you continue to pour, their seeds are being nourished. In their growing process you will not see instant growth. Just as a seed is in the ground, its roots break through the seed at it is being nourished. It seems completely dark, but the Lord is doing something special to that seed. He begins to rain (reign) upon that seed, then He sends His sun (Son) to shine upon His seed. Oh’ but when it breaks through the dirt and starts to become strengthened through the process. This is when you will begin to see the change. it is then that they have broken through their dirt of darkness and you can see the manifestation of the Lord.

Our words need to be words of light, life, building, restoration, compassion, kindness, growth and ultimately LOVE.

“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and and evil man out of his evil treasure brings forth evil things. But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgement. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” Matthew 12:35-37

Greater is He that is in me…….

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.

O’ Dear God,
