“And they overcame by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death.”

Revelation 12:11

I wonder how many of us have carried things alone because of our fear of what other people may think.  Not knowing who to trust with our issues. Thinking no one would understand or be able to help. Maybe you trusted someone, and they dropped you. So, instead of getting the help you so desperately needed you continued to suffer in silence.

I have made so many bad decisions because I allowed the opinion of other people to rule my life. I am grateful that God is delivering me from the opinion of other people and allowing me to walk boldly in the freedom in which he has given me.  I can do this the more I rely on His strength and direction and knowing who I am in him.

” I can do all things through Christ that strengthens”

Philippians 4:13

We are all imperfect people. So, no matter our religious beliefs, the color of our skin, or our sexual orientation God still loves us, and his desire is that we all be made whole and set free. We are all fighting our own demons whether we want to admit it or not. It is a daily walk, and we are always in need of his grace.

The thing about scars is that it shows the Glory of God and what he can do in our lives if we allow him to. Some of us are still healing from scars that have left us wounded, hurt, and broken. The good news is that God can still heal, deliver, and set us free from the things that have continued to keep us in bondage.

Scars are evidence that God is still working in our lives

Some of our scars have been embarrassing. We have experienced some very painful moments that go deep. We should be embracing our scars but instead we have become ashamed of them due to the condemnation that can come from other people. Gods loves for us is unconditional despite our history. Scars show the power of God working in our life. They are evidence of the things we have conquered, what we have overcome and survived through.

No matter how far you have come there will always be people who will try to remind you of where you have been but the one thing they will never be able take away from you is what God has done in your life because of it.  Let that be your point of reference and a place to focus.

We have nothing to be ashamed of because the blood of Jesus Christ covers all our scar’s past, present, and future. The testimony of my scars is a sign that you too can recover. So, I wear my scars proudly because I know that nobody, but God could do that for me.

You To Can Recover

He Loves Us by Jesus Culture

Now Be Restored by Vashawn Mitchell

When I was cleaning out my oven I realized that it wasn’t only that I needed to maintain the cleaning of the oven often so that things wouldn’t build up and would be hard to clean, but it was also what I was using. My mother had bought me some cheap stuff that wasn’t doing the job and was making the process a little bit longer. I believe my mother would never  steer me the wrong way and was giving me what she thought was best. The things that may work for everyone else may not work for us. So I went and bought another brand that cost a little more money, was a name brand but was highly recommended. We can’t always use the cheapest brand or take the easiest way out and thinking the result will be the same. So I sprayed it on the oven and immediately I could tell in the texture of what it looked like and as the dirt immediately surfaced to the top I knew it was going to work. So I decided to let it sit over night. When I came back the next day I stood in amazement of how it looked, that I could tell there was a difference. As I began to wipe the oven underneath the surface so clean it was as if it was a brand new oven. You could hardly see the trace of it being used after all these years. Had I thought to use this in the beginning I wouldn’t have had to go through all of that, but I realize some processes are necessary.   A lot of times we can look at our life by what we’ve done, what has been done to us or what we’ve gone through that we will never recover from the damage or the things that we have lost. Your past isn’t who you are, but it is what you’ve done or what has been done to you. It only takes the right ingredients which is the blood of Jesus Christ. What can wash away our sins NOTHING but the blood of Jesus. He can restore, He can heal, He can deliver, He can set free and whom the Son sets free is free indeed. All is not lost. #CLEANTHISHOUSE

The Oven Cleaner

You Have My Heart by Farris Long

Nobody Greater by Vashawn Mitchell

I was starting to clean out the oven in the apartment and Wow what a challenge this is going to be. I have never had to clean out an oven before, thank God for that, so I’m clueless.  My mother told me exactly what to do. So I started spraying the oven immediately. It immediately foamed up and dirt began to surface, but the fumes OMG! So as I let it set I began to clean up else where. When I came back to it was filthy and had picked up so much stuff. I kept rinsing the rag repeatedly until the water was clear, but to my surprise there was still a lot left in the oven because I had only scratched the surface of what remained. So in order for me to get rid of what was left I was going to have to continually repeat the process so it would be completely clean to where there is almost no evidence or trace of it being used. Most of us have only scratched the surface of what had happened in our life. Though we came out of the fire, we made it through the storm and rain we are now only surviving because that’s what we have been taught. We didn’t deal with the damaged it caused or the residue it left behind. So when the next storms come we go into survival mode, but what it left begins to pile up and now we are trying to recover from all. Had we only done the proper maintenance after each storm.  #CLEANTHISHOUSE

Introduction to Clean This House

Break Every Chain by Tasha Cobbs
Clean This House by Isaac Carree

I was going through the process of transition as I was exiting one season of life and entering into another one.”Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it. I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert” Isaiah 43:19 God began to deal with me and take me through a healing and a cleansing process. As I was going through this transition in my life He began to reveal them to me as if in parables. As it is in the natural so it is in the spirit. He uses natural methods of cleaning our physical house to cleaning our spiritual house.Through this was birthed “CLEAN THIS HOUSE”I noticed the more transparent I became and the more I released the more freedom, the more peace that I felt and the chains that once held me captive and kept me in bondage began to break in my life.My prayer is that as we take this journey together that God will give you a new look on life and that you will find the courage to #CLEANTHISHOUSE
