Yesterday I had to put my car in the shop because my window fell down into the door. It was so jammed inside that they couldn’t even get the panel open. I had just gotten the dealership to fix it a couple of months ago because the motor went out on both sides of the car. Those were not cheap at all. They said, “We will probably need to keep it a couple of days, so we can set you up with a rental car.” Because they didn’t have any rentals on site they had to use an outside source. When I got to the rental place they failed to tell me all the stuff that I would need like my car insurance information, a deposit and the dealership had it as if I was paying for it when I wasn’t. So as if that wasn’t frustrating enough I called my car insurance to get all the information they needed only to find out that after all these years that I have been paying insurance I wasn’t fully covered. They had me under liability only. RIGHT! I said , “Lord I’m going to need your help today” Luckly I was able to get everything fixed and I had never been in a wreck. God had me covered. It made me think about how people walk around in life uncovered. No morales or values. Could care less if they live or die. No hope at all. I remember one day I was that way until I meet Jesus and made Him Lord over my life. He changed my life forever. When I accepted Him as my Savior I became fully covered under the blood. I became a daughter of the King, joint heir to the throne. What He owns now also belongs to me. The thorns on his head keeps my in perfect peace when my mind is stayed on him. The blood that he shed covers and protects me from danger seen and unseen. He gave His life that freed me from bondage and sin. It allowed me to walk in freedom and to live life more abundately. Because I accepted Him as Lord over my life if I die today my soul will live forever with Him in paradise. Don’t walk around life under covered. Jesus Christ is life guaranteed.

Alive in Him
I AM dead to sin and alive to God in Christ
Romans 6:1-11 “Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord”
When I accepted Jesus Christ into my life as my personal Savior not only was I forgiven of sin, but I made him Lord over my life. I gave him full control and reign. As a daughter of the King that means I now have to walk in the image of my father and though his grace is sufficient for me, but it doesn’t give me the right to take advantage of it nor give me the right to do what I want to do. Every day I have to continue to die to myself (my flesh), I have to turn over my will to his. There is a war going on within me between my flesh and my spirit and the one I continue to strengthen will overcome and win. Even in times when I become weak the strength of the Lord sustains me to do his will. We think it’s sooo hard to serve him, but it’s much harder to recover when we continue in sin. As a reflection of the King as he is than so am I. I am alive and I am free. Though I am not all the way there yet and eventhough I struggle and I make mistakes I don’t stay where I am. Every day I continue to strive to be the image of my father because I AM the daughter of the King.
Stop The Cycle
Break Every Chain by Tasha Cobbs
One day my two smallest girls had gotten into an argument and my baby girl started yelling and stormed up to her room. At that moment I had a fast forward picture of an older version of me and I heard the Lord say stop the cycle. To myself I said we are going to stop this now because she will not wait until she is my age to learn how to communicate and express herself correctly. So I called her back downstairs and I asked her what happened and to talk to me about how she feels. She immediately began to cry. I told her that I’m not fussing and that we are going to do whatever it takes to walk through this process. It was ok for her to feel the way she felt and what she had to say was important, but it wasn’t ok in how she responded. I would sometimes have problems with communicating what I felt and wanted to say so in my frustration I would not think what I had to say was important so I wouldn’t say it, I would hold it in until I exploded and 9 out of 10 it was on the person who didn’t even deserve it. Because I had no one to help me through it, it became and formed other unhealthy habits that became worse as an adult. They say that some habits are hard to break, but every cycle can be broken. A lot of it was learning how to forgive, let go and how to effectively communicate. I explained to my daughter why it was important and that I didn’t want her to wait until she was an adult to learn what she can now. It’s just like a hamster who get’s up on the wheel and once it learns how to make it turn it continue’s the cycle. It may occasionally stop and get off, but it will get back on it because overtime it became a habit and that was all it had been shown. Until it learns something better it continues the cycle. In life we continue the same cycles because it’s all we’ve known, been shown or we didn’t learn from the time before. We have the power within us to break every cycle that has been handed down to us through generations or things we have picked up over the course of our life. Just like the hamster we can get off the wheel at any given point, but it’s up to us to make the choice to stay off the continued cycle and form a more positive habit that will cause us to live a long and healthy life. The question is are we willing to do what it takes to break every chain? #CLEANTHISHOUSE
