Next month I get the awesome opportunity to be one of the speakers at an amazing women’s conference and the theme is “Are You a Fountain or a Drain?” I’m so looking forward to this event! This event is being given by a sister-friend of mine, Minister Galetha Beard. She’s the president of their ministry called Women of Vision. SIFH has been partnering with this ministry for the past 3 years and love everything they stand for!

Now, if you’re in Georgia and would love to attend this event and be refreshed, encouraged and challenged, it will be on November 7th and the cost is $20.00, food included! Not bad for a women’s event, huh?  Below, is the link where you can find the details and register for the event. I really hope to see you there!

Soul Ties

What is a sosoul ties redul tie?

“A soul tie is the joining or knitting together of the bonds of a relationship. Godly soul ties occur
when like-minded believers are together in the Lord: friends, marriage partners, believers to
pastors, etc. Relationships that lack ‘God-centeredness’ can result in ungodly soul ties between
friends, parents and children, siblings, marriage partners, former romantic or sexual partners,
domineering authorities, etc. An unhealthy attachment with another can bring about a psychic
control that can adversely affect the life, e.g. a mother who refuses to relinquish her hold on her
children (tied to her apron strings), a person who refuses to release to the Lord the memory of an
old romantic flame (withdrawing into nostalgia in times of loneliness), a person who holds a grudge
or a judgment against another, someone who uses spiritual forces to control others (witchcraft),
etc.”

Prayer for breaking ungodly soul ties:

“In the name of Jesus Christ I now renounce, break and loose myself from all demonic subjection and any
ungodly soul ties and unhealthy bondings with the following people: (break soul ties with each person that
comes to mind)”

“Lord, I ask you to do whatever it takes to break me of my tendencies to: obsessive preoccupations,
domination, control, passivity, apathy, unforgiveness, anger, blame, accusations, fear, intimidation and
disobedience in relationships.”

“Finally, in the name of Jesus, I declare every demonic hold in my life that has come as a result of
unhealthy soul ties null and void. Satan, I renounce you and your demons and command you to depart
from my spirit, soul and body!”

God of the Storm

Sometimes things happen to us in our lives that are painful, like gut wrenching pain.  The first question we ask is why. Why did this have to happen to me? Why now? It never makes sense in the midst of it.  It just hurts. No one can offer any solace; although they mean well, their words don’t seem to take the pain away.  Somehow in the midst of all this pain you find that you get through the day and wake up the next morning realizing somehow you made it through.  What we don’t realize is that in the pain, there’s something bigger and greater going on that’s being orchestrated by Someone who’s bigger and greater than the pain we feel. When my mom died a month after I had my first daughter, my heart was crushed! My mom had only seen her granddaughter once before she died! Just imagine; after giving birth, via C-section, your mom pass and you are left with weird hormonal feelings, soreness, swollen breasts, a new baby and new husband with no guidance what so ever! I was angry, hurt and very disappointed! Many thoughts and questions consumed my mind. Why did she have to die after my baby was born? Why now Lord? I don’t know what I’m doing!  I need my mom! My baby girl (either of them, because now I have two daughters) would never know her grandmother! Who would I call when I had questions without my mom here? Who would I talk to about all I was going through on this new journey I’d embarked on?  Well, when I asked the Lord why, He heard my cry and gave me an answer as to why.  Now, keep in mind He didn’t have to tell me anything. He is God, but He is also love and He is close to the broken-hearted (Psalm 34:18).   As painful as it was, I understood why and He gave me comfort in His answer.  In spite of the loss of my mom, I became a great mother and wife and God gave me spiritual moms to provide guidance and comfort along the way. As a result of my mom’s death, our family became closer and it deepened my relationship with my sister.  I also feel that my mom’s death made me appreciate life more, realizing it is short and precious. So, I have to make the most of every moment I have with my daughters.

It is important to realize that although we go through pain, God sees all and He will help us through it.  After all, He did say that He would never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5).  In this pain, I have found strength that I didn’t know I had and I have come to know God more intimately.  He became my mother and my father.  He has become all that I need and will ever need on this life journey.  Here are some pearls of wisdom I have learned that I want to share with you in hopes it will give you peace in the middle of your storm (pain).

  1. God, even though He loves us beyond words, is more interested in building our character than He is in our comfort. It doesn’t feel good and it all seems bad but, we know that in all things God works things out for the good of those who love His, who are the called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).
  2. God is purposeful.  He uses every tear, every joy, every heartache and pain to mold and shape us into what He created us to be. He is the potter; we are the clay (Isaiah 64:8).
  3. What we go through, whether good or bad, it’s for God’s glory and to help someone else along the way. We shouldn’t be afraid to share our story with others especially if you’re getting the nudge from the Lord to do so.  God has a great way of orchestrating divine connections.  You never know, your testimony may be just what the other person needed to lead them to God.  We need each other and God didn’t mean for us to go through life alone.  (John 13:34-35)
  4. What we go through will either cause us to run to God or run away from Him, the choice is ours. You will never be alone if you run to Him!
  5. He’s waiting to love on us and strengthen us through our pain.
  6. Most importantly, I’ve learned that through pain, comes purpose! Through the pain and consequences of premarital sex, came my purpose/ministry, Savin’ it for Hubby.  By me sharing my story, I help others see that they are not alone, God still loves them and wants them, and He has taken away all shame and guilt and most of all He is the Great Restorer!

I don’t know what painful situation you’re in right now but God does and will be with you through it all if you ask Him too.  If you’re going through a divorce, He still loves you and will take care of you. If you have lost someone dear to you, He will be there to wipe every tear away. (Isaiah 25:8) Nothing is too hard for God to handle! (Jeremiah 32:17). So, release your pain, trust Him and let Him give you rest.

Be blessed & encouraged,

Shannon


Withholding Goods

Proverbs 3:27-28 (NKJV)

27 Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due,
When it is in the power of your hand to do so.
28 Do not say to your neighbor,
“Go, and come back,
And tomorrow I will give it,”
When you have it with you.

God uses us, His people, to bless others. Often we pray for something or are in need of something and we don’t get it because the person that God wants to use to bless you, decides that they don’t want to do what God told them to do. They may choose not to because takes them out of their comfort zone or God could have touched on a sore spot of plain selfishness. But think about it, what if you were the one in need or your child was the one in need? Wouldn’t you want someone to move when God told them to? We have to be the change we want to see. You never know what you may be sitting on or hoarding in your garage, the one thing that your neighbor needs and because of your selfishness or your disobedience, that person goes without. God loves a cheerful giver and most of the time you get back what you’ve given but please don’t let that be your motivation. Give out of love, love should be your motivation. Plus, you never know when you may need help and trust me, the day will come. There will come a time when we will all have to depend on each other and share our belongings but isn’t that what God wanted us to do anyway? What happened to the Acts 2 church? LOVE ANYWAY! It’s not about you or how you feel, it’s about God. He’s the One who gave you all that you have anyway! You didn’t get it on your own and it can quickly be taken away from you! You can’t say that you’re a Christian but when you’re called to do something for God, you decide not to do so! It’s not about you, show LOVE ANYWAY!

Be blessed & encouraged, 

Shannon
