Need a Miracle?

Well no matter who you are and no matter what you've done

There will come a time when you can't make it on your own

And in your hour of desperation

Know you're not the only one

Prayin', "lord above, I need a miracle

I need a miracle" 

I Need a Miracle // Third Day. 

Maybe that’s a place your are today.  Thinking yeah you need one of those…miracles in your life.  Or, maybe you’ve even had the guts to ask God for one, and you're just waiting.

Maybe you doubt that God can give you one, either because you feel like you have to do something to earn it, or maybe you feel like He doesn’t do that anymore. 

I read this in my bible this morning and it reminded me of what’s possible when you “deploy” God in your life.  

“Who is like you among the gods, O Lord glorious in holiness, awesome in splendor, performing GREAT wonders? You raised your right hand and the earth swallowed our enemies. With your UNFAILING love you lead the people you have redeemed. In your MIGHT, you guide them to your sacred home." - (Exodus 15:12-14)

That’s really good news. That God is more than a friend you can talk to, He's not a distant being that is watching your mistakes. No. God is a powerful being that can change course for your life, maybe even the miracle you need. 

When you think about whether or not you should ask God for his help with something, think, why not?

You are His Favorite

You might think this is kind of egotistical, for you to say this about yourself.  But it’s true.  

I had the privilege of attending the Women of Faith Conference in Seattle over the weekend. (You might remember we gave away a Girls Getaway Trip on the air! I got to go and host our winners.) 

One of the speakers, Pastor Judah Smith, from The City Church in Seattle, talked about how the disciple, John, would always call himself; “The One Jesus Loves."  Judah made a joke about how it must have been annoying that he gave himself that nickname, like he was the favorite of all the disciples, self-appointed!  

Judah’s point was that we all are!  For Jesus to die so that you wouldn’t face God’s judgement, and NOT be held accountable for all your mistakes, wow, You are His favorite. He LOVES You!

He encouraged the women in the room to write it on our mirrors, the same phrase that John used.  

“I am the One He loves.”  

Don't laugh.  I did it.  As soon as I got home I put it on my mirror, and the mirror in my children's bathroom. I can't be the only woman that struggles with feeling loved.  As a single mother with 3 young children, sometimes you question if you're just damaged goods. Single moms often wonder if it's possible that anyone would love you enough plus your children.  I realized yes, there is someone.  He's always been there, and He will never leave me. Thank you my Jesus... 

It really changes the outlook of your day when that’s the first thing you see when you wake up…
