Things in life happen, that’s a fact. But NOTHING can separate us from the love of Christ, it is written right in His Word so it is a FACT. It also says we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us. What are you facing today? It is not greater than the One who made you! It is not greater than His love for you. Anything that tries to convince you of anything else is a lie from the pit of hell and you need to send that thought back cancelled and denied! Child of God, look to up to your Father the author and finisher of your faith. You ARE more than a conqueror through Christ and this mountain before you will not defeat you. Declare a thing in the name of Christ and watch it move! You’ve got this, because God’s got you! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? [shall] tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” ~ Romans 8:35-37

What an awesome God we serve. He gave His Son for our lives to pay for our sins. We were so undeserving, yet He did this before we even came to ask for forgiveness and truly know Him. Do you think there is one need He can’t meet or thing He can’t freely give us? All you need to do is ask your Father in faith. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” ~ Romans 8:32

Whew, this verse! The last several days I have felt like anything that could go wrong did. Today I found myself completely irritable and this evening as I sat down to write this, I found myself overwhelmed with emotion as tears spilled down my cheeks. Poppa, I can’t do this alone. I feel the world is against me. Ah, my daughter, but I am for you. I reread today’s verse with tears now falling hard as I heard again, my daughter I am for you. Hard times are certain to come and difficult people with them. Not everyone standing in your corner is “in” your corner, but God is for you and that is really all that matters. Hold on to that dear heart because He will see you though the darkest hours! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“What shall we then say to these things? If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us?” ~ Romans 8:31

Life is not perfect, but we serve a perfect God! We are thrown twist and turns we could never have expected and often times the enemy likes for us to think we are going to crash and burn. But God. He takes the wheel and turns the direction of things in ways we could never have even imagined. Does it look like you are at a dead end road or even worse ready to crash and burn? Allow Jesus to take the wheel and prepare to be surprised by your destination. He makes beauty from ashes and He makes all things work for the good of those called according to His purpose. Press in and press on, your Father has more for you! ~ 💛Chelle, #f8ithgal

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] purpose.” ~ Romans 8:28

There are some days when I just don’t know how to pray. Have you been there? Life just hits you every which way and you just don’t know what way to go next yet, but Your Father does and the Spirit within you knows exactly how to pray on your behalf! It will make intercession for you. If it weren’t so, it would not be written in God’s Word. So when you don’t have the words, give it to God and allow the Holy Spirit to intercede on your behalf. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what [is] the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to [the will of] God.” ~ Romans 8:26-27

When you are saved by the blood of Jesus you are set free, period. You are no longer the slave to the spirit of bondage, no longer captive to fear. We are adopted, redeemed. How awesome is that? That deserves a praise shout! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.” ~ Romans 8:15

Several times I felt the condemning tone of others over the last day or two. I sat with tears stinging my cheeks as I internalized their words, taking every single one to heart. I began to feel a whisper in my spirit, there is no condemnation in Christ. It grew louder and louder until I looked for the verse I knew all too well and read it aloud, “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” ~ Romans 8:1 I sat in quiet reflection. This condemnation was not coming from God. It was not constructive, it was destructive. It was not for my building, it to belittle. The spirit surrounding it was not Christ like. Shake it off daughter. There is no condemnation in me. I build up, I don’t tear down. But Poppa, why do people do those things? Then I immediately thought, does it even matter? A person must be pretty unhappy, I wonder if they even realize they come across as so condescending? Don’t allow the way others treat you cause you to in turn internalize how you view yourself. You are enough, you are doing great, you are worthy, you were chosen by God for a specific purpose that only you can do. Don’t allow anyone to take away your sparkle! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

I cannot tell you how many times I’ve talked to my Father about this heart of mine. The tears come so easily for me. I am a certified crybaby to all who know me. In deep conversations with my Poppa, He has told me it’s because He’s given me His heart. Wow. How can I do anything but embrace who I am, tears and all? When I read today’s verse, I felt it. It’s two words, but powerful ones. “Jesus wept.” ~ John 11:35 He was God in human form and He had emotions like you and me. He expressed deep sorrow with tears. He wept. This verse just got me today as we laid my cousin to rest. I saw so many tears falling. We will see her again because of the blood of Jesus that allows us to leave this world to a better place and avoid the sting of death. Jesus still weeps for the lost and is calling them to repentance. I couldn’t help but feel tears falling down my cheeks for those He is calling. It’s not not too late. Listen to His voice, He’s calling. He is the way, the truth, and the light. He can reach down in your pit of despair and lift you out. Drugs, depression… whatever it is, it is no match for the blood of Jesus, He weeps for YOU! Answer His call. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Jesus wept.” ~ John 11:35

The light of Jesus will penetrate into the very darkness that tries to claim you! The devil seeks to destroy while Jesus seeks to heal. He will pull you deeper into the darkness that is trying to consume you while Jesus pulls you away into the light. When you are walking with your Father you start to lose your taste for those things of the world. As you draw closer to Him, He starts to cleanse and purge you from those things that the devil tries to hold over you. Walking with your Father and a close relationship with Him is the key. He wants to talk to you and wants it to be a two way conversation. Share with Him all that you feel and listen for Him to respond to your heart. He will always guide you out of the darkness. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” ~ John 8:12
