I will rise by the strength of the Lord!


God promises to be close to the brokenhearted and to be our source of power, courage and wisdom. You may feel like your situation is hopeless. You may go dragging into Church on Sunday morning saying, “Dear God, you don’t know the trouble I have seen. I have been through the fire Oh, dear God, did the devil visit our house this week!” But you are still here. You made it. And now it is recovery time! Recovery means you get everything back that was stolen from you. It means you lay hold upon; retake, regain; and obtain possession of everything that rightfully belongs to you. It is recovery time.

The righteous person faces many troubles, but the Lord comes to the rescue every time.”~Psalms 34:19


Throughout the Word of God, after God’s people have experienced a season of refreshing, then comes their recovery, next comes their restoration, then comes the harvest for which they had been believing God.

Ask yourself right now, “How badly do I want recovery in my life? How badly do I want freedom from depression and oppression?” If you want it badly enough, then get your spiritual life right. Determine right now that you are going to press into God. Devote more time to fellowship, prayer and in His Word. Completely surrender your will to His. Don’t sit back and watch it happen to everyone else. Get in on it. Get out of your boat of depression, and get out on the water of refreshing.

Arise from this depression that has kept you back and kept you down. It is time to arise to new life. It is refreshing time in your life. It is restoration time. It is reviving time. It is recovery time. God does not want you to miss out on what He has planned for you. Be determined in Jesus’ name that you are going to get right in the midst of it.

Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
