Nourishment for Your Soul and Mind: November 20, 2022

There will be some situations in life when you need to approach the throne room of grace and mercy and leave your case at your Father’s feet. He will indeed save you from those or that situation that is trying to swallow you up. He will send forth His mercy and truth into the situation acting in your defense as He holds you in the palm of His hand. The enemy seeks to destroy that which he fears. If your in an intense battle, the Lord will not leave you alone through it. The process, while hard, will purify you by burning out the flesh that needs to go and your faith will grow stronger. What the enemy means for your destruction, our Father uses for our growth. Glory hallelujah, we won’t come out the way we went in. Our glow will be different and our strength will be unimaginable. Hold tight child of God and lean into your Father. This too will pass and His light will shine brighter through you for it, I feel a testimony coming on. 🔥 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“1 Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until [these] calamities be overpast. 2 I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth [all things] for me. 3 He shall send from heaven, and save me [from] the reproach of him that would swallow me up. Selah. God shall send forth his mercy and his truth.” ~ Psalms 57:1~3

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 19

Today I am thankful for family. This was a difficult year for me. I almost bled to death and have faced other serious medical issues. It has been an emotional roller coaster. I am thankful for family I can call for prayer support, emergency trips to the ER, and just someone to listen when my heart needs it. We may argue at times, but I can count on them to be there when I need them. I am so thankful for my family. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.” ~ 1 Corinthians 13:13

My mind has been overwhelmed lately. The enemy loves to cloud our mind with worry and worry is not of God. Our Father knows all and sees all. Nothing is hidden from Him. The enemy can’t pull anything that will surprise our Father. Our Father also sees ahead. The hardest part for us is sometimes trusting the unknown when the enemy is trying to push worry so hard. But we serve a God that is skilled in turning the hardest situations around for our favor. He also brings anything done in darkness into the light! So take heart my precious brothers and sisters . Do not be consumed with worry, trust everything to God. 🔥 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. 3 Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.” ~ Luke 12:2-3

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 18

Today I am thankful for the birds. It is peaceful to watch them and talk to them. I enjoy feeding them and watching them interact with each other. God often speaks to me a lot through them. I am thankful for the birds and to be just sit and watch them. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine.” ~ Psalm 50:11

As I read today’s passage, I recalled a rough period of time in Colorado where the Lord gave me beauty for ashes. The oil of joy for my mourning ran over me and I wore the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness that had me bound. He would send these ravens to watch over me, I would go out and talk to them as they circled the sky. They would call out in response to me. Day after day this went on. I didn’t leave Colorado the same way I came in. To God be the glory, I left Holy Ghost filled and equipped for the Kingdom destiny my Father had planned. Lately the enemy has tried to tell me I’m alone and a heaviness tried to overtake me. But God. I have started seeing those large black birds circling the sky here. I’ve slipped on the garment of praise for my heaviness. I will not go back into the darkness my Father pulled me out from. The oil of joy still pours over me from my Father above. I’m watching the sky and the things my Father shows me there. Eyes on my Father, Kingdom minded, about Kingdom things. 🔥 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.” ~ Isaiah 61:3

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 17

Today I am thankful for praying friends and they know who they are. A long time ago, God told me He was going to make my circle small and He sure did. There are very few I can turn to when I really need them. A lot say they will pray, but there are only a select few that I know will war in heavens on my behalf. We know from the book of Daniel the enemy will sometimes try to stop our prayers from getting through. I have some Prayer Warriors that are seasoned in battle. I am blessed to have them praying me through when I am battle weary. I am so thankful for praying friends. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“9 Two [are] better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. 10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him [that is] alone when he falleth; for [he hath] not another to help him up.” ~ Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

Man I needed this verse. I love it when the Lord gives the perfect Scripture for the battle you find yourself in! It seems lately the enemy is coming in like a flood and I can feel the waters starting to come up around my face, but today’s verse reminds me the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. Those waters aren’t going to overtake me, they have to recede. The enemy can huff and puff, but he’s actually making me stronger in my Father as he pushes me closer to Him. Are the waters of the enemy raising around you? Draw closer to your Father and trust in His Him and His Word. The enemy is already defeated. 🔥 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.” ~ Isaiah 59:19

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 16

I am so thankful for answered prayers. We can take what we need to our Father. He not only listens, but responds. I needed an ID with my married name to get my husband added to my insurance and I needed it quickly. I went Monday and they couldn’t do it. They sent me to Social Security to update my name. I went back, waited hours, and they still could not do it. They said the system was probably not updated. I was discouraged. I called yesterday and got a helpful lady who went above and beyond who reached out to help desk and said the issue was resolved. I went back today and got a very kind lady I had watched Monday and prayed to get but had not. She said why are you getting an ID instead of license. I explained mine had been expired too long and I needed it immediately. She said your driving record is clean. She proceeds and my ID is still being blocked. She calls help desk, comes back and says we are going to try to get you a license and she did! I left with my driver’s license not an ID!! Look at God. He delayed my ID on Monday because He was shining His favor on what I really needed Wednesday. He sees the full picture. I had prayed for my license and He worked it out! That is such a small thing, can you imagine the bigger prayers?! I am so thankful for a God that listens and answers when we come before His throne! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.” ~ Psalm 66:19

The thoughts and ways of the Lord are unlike our own. His ways and His thoughts are so much higher than our own. He sees what we can’t. He sees ahead and He sees the whole picture while we only see in part. We are often moved from a place of emotion and He loves us but His actions aren’t moved by emotion instead by what is best in the whole picture that we can’t see. We have to lean in and trust Him when things we pray for don’t come to pass. We have to lean in and seek Him for guidance before we react in situations. I am so guilty of not doing this and then having to ask for His help with the fallout. I’m a work in progress and so thankful He never gives up on me! His thoughts and ways are higher so we must seek Him and He will share those thoughts and ways with us. It’s that daily walk with Him where He reveals His heart to us and shares His very thoughts. A personal walk with Him is critical for a child of God. 🔥 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“8 For my thoughts [are] not your thoughts, neither [are] your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 9 For [as] the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” ~ Isaiah 55:8-9

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 15

Today I am thankful for my progression physically, emotionally, and spiritually! I got on the scales this morning and I had hit a major milestone, I was finally back under 200 pounds y’all! Tonight I heard the Lord say, I’m not only removing physical weight daughter, but that emotional weight you have been carrying is gone! Glory hallelujah. He’s doing a new thing in this season. He’s removing the dead and renewing strength as I grow and progress forward in Him. Spiritual growth and acceleration is my portion in this season! Praise the Lord, I am thankful for my progression. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
