Faith Filled Friday
My dear one, drink deeply of the pleasures of Me, your God. Experience for yourself the joyous mercies I give to all who turn to hide themselves in Me. For I am your God and there is none like Me! Come and learn of Me, come and rest in My Presence, receive of My strength today. Come and walk in the garden of My peace today. Come and let My love fill your heart as you meditate on My goodness.
See yourself walking along side Me as I show you things you did not know. What is the cry of your heart? What is it you would like Me to be for you today? Will you let go and let Me be that for you, without trying to control all the circumstances? For My ways are far above your ways and My thoughts higher than your thoughts. Even your imagination, as good as it is, cannot even come close to My splendor.
Beloved, let Me be the One to WOW you with My creativity that is matchless in all the world.
Oh what sweet words of wisdom to walk with for this new year! Thanks for joining us for Coffee Hour with Chicklit Power and Faith-Filled Friday’s with Trench Classes United. Enjoy this love letter from the heart of God to Debra’s heart now to yours.
Good morning, My child.
True love for Me means obeying My commands, and My commands don't weigh you down as heavy burdens. I never ask you to do anything that you cannot do; and then I give you the strength and the ability to do what I do ask. So My burden is not heavy. If you are feeling weighted down today, take a step back and do a quick inventory: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual, then you will find what is putting a strain on you.
Take care of yourself that you may be strong for My work. Rest when you need to rest. Take time with Me that your spirit can be refreshed. Be sharp, be quick to declare My Word. Have a Scripture for everything! Then you will have an encouraging word for everyone you meet along the way.
Everything I do is to make you more like Me. Look at your life, your activities; do you look like Me? Beloved, let your love for Me flow through you causing you to love your neighbor as yourself.
From His heart to yours,
Faith Filled Friday
Good morning, My warrior. My grace is always more than enough for you, and My power finds its full expression through your weaknesses. So celebrate your weaknesses, for when you are weak you sense more deeply the mighty power of Me living in you.
I desire that you look to Me in all things; that you learn to trust Me and rely on Me; that you train your ear to hear My voice, to know the leading of the Holy Spirit. I don't lead you into bad situations and if you are listening to Me, you will never find yourself there.
Take an inventory of your life. Are there things that cause you to compromise yourself, your faith? Are you full of worldly desires, selfishness or bitterness? You say that I am your Lord, but you never let Me sit on the throne of your heart and life. I desire to be your Lord, your Savior, the King of your life.
Beloved, I desire to be the God that leads you out of the desert and into the promise land, where there is milk and honey.
From the heart of God thru…
Faith Filled Friday
Good morning, My love.
Remember to stay alert and hold firmly to all that you believe. Be mighty and full of courage. Let love and kindness be the motivation behind all that you do. For love and kindness are what people remember.
You can tell them about Me all day long, but unless you are compassionate, unless you love unconditionally, people barely hear you. But when your life lines up with My Word, that is when you become most effective.
People want to be delivered from the hell they are living through now, they don't really care about the sweet by-and-by. Do you take the time to listen? Do you care about their struggle? Sometimes the best answer is to listen. Some just need to be heard. And when you take the time to just listen, oh My love, then you can shower them with love and compassion, for that is worth more than silver and gold.
People need to know they are loved. Just like I gave My life for you, I gave My life for them. Beloved, embrace those I put in your path for they need your love and My life.
In the midst of this season, may we push the pause button to not only read these words, but to allow them to digest in our soul, be planted in our hearts and bloom in our lives.
Thanks for joining us for Faith-Filled Friday @ Coffee Hour with Chicklit Power and Trench Classes United.
Get yourself something warm to drink and get comfy and cozy as you read this love letter from the heart of God thru Debra
Good morning, My bride.
Life is good for the one who is generous and charitable, conducting affairs with honesty and truth. In order for the world around you to see you're different, you must be different. See, you have been called to righteousness and that is in every area of your life. When dealing with your family, portray Me and treat them as I treat you. Love and respect your family, even if they are not treating you the best.
Look at every situation with My eyes. Ask Me to show you what to do, what to say and what not to say. Set boundaries for I desire you to be loving but not abused. Look at situations in your work and dealing with others.
Don't be afraid to show your real self for I am your God. You don't have to be on a soapbox to let My Light shine through you. Being kind, honest, generous and trustworthy stands out like a beacon in this dark age. Don't be the voice of reason; be My voice, the voice of the Living God.
Beloved, declare My Word…
In the era of computers and social media, text messaging, tweeting and twittering, it’s so heartwarming to receive a letter in the mail….so while U.S. Postal mail is diminishing with the use of email, we know you’ll appreciate this love letter written thru Debra from the heart of God to you. I think it’s especially timely as we enter the “season.”
Thanks so much for stopping by for Coffee Hour with Chicklit Power and Faith-Filled Friday with Trench Classes United.
My warrior, I will keep you in perfect peace as you trust in Me, all whose thoughts are fixed on Me!
Beloved, My desire is for you to walk in perfect peace, My peace that passes all understanding for it will guard your hearts and minds through Me. To stay in My peace you must believe that I Am, and that I Am a rewarder of those that diligently seek Me.
Look at the word diligent and think about the things you are diligent about. Do you work at getting to know Me, My ways, or My desires? Do you seek after Me? Do you seek after wisdom or understanding? Do you practice trusting Me?
I know that it is hard for you to let go of that control you think you have. Beloved, practice trusting that I will care for you, that I will answer your prayers and supply your needs, that I will give you wisdom, for if you put Me first I will add everything that is needed for life and happiness.
As written to and thru
How many times have you felt like He’s not listening? Or the answer you got didn’t look like what you thought? You’re going to love God’s love letter today.
Thanks for joining us for Coffee Hour with Chicklit Power and Faith-filled Friday with Trench Classes United and Debra Dolce.
Good morning My love. I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you received it, it will be yours. The key is to believe! If you believe something then you act as though it's a done deal. So if you pray and believe for rain, you better carry an umbrella; that’s believing!
The same applies to all you are believing for. No plan B. Just plan G = God!
Many make this back-up plan in case I don't answer on time, or like you think I should, but that nullifies your belief, which nullifies your faith. It actually looks like you're telling the God of the Universe how to answer your prayer.
When your faith is applied with no plan B, beloved, stand back, for then you will see much more than you could have ever thought or imagined. I am a good, good Father and I know how to care for My children. Even before you ask, I know what your need is. Beloved, let Me be the God I am in your life today.
Love from the Father above thru…
Have you ever served on a jury in a criminal case and experienced the emotion of the final judgment? Welcome to Coffee Hour with Chicklit Power and Faith-filled Friday with Trench Classes United. Debra has a beautiful word for us today!
Good morning, My love. So now the case is closed. There remains no accusing voice of condemnation against those who are joined in life, in union with Me, the Anointed One. But the accuser is constantly at work, telling you of all the things you are doing wrong and how you will never measure up - lies, all lies. Is My blood not sufficient?
Let's look forward to what I have for you. Think on what is true and honest, just and pure, lovely and has a good report. Rid your mind of all negative, especially as it pertains to you...and all of My beloveds.
My Word says to let My mind be in you. If you could see what I see: I see such good, such value in you. You are a pearl of great price and I desire that you come and spend time with Me, that you lay aside your own wants and desires and seek after Me.
Run after Me, and I will cause all of your desires to be fulfilled. Your dreams and visions are small compared to what I desire for you. If you can dream it, I can make it bigger, for you serve a God that has no limitations, all is at My fingertips. Beloved, ALL means ALL.
Welcome to Coffee Hour with Chicklit Power and Faith-filled Fridays with Trench Classes United. Come on in for some words from His heart to yours, written by Debra Dolce.
My blessed child, this is My command: be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For I, the Lord your God, am with you wherever you go. If you are feeling lonely, spend time with Me, for My joy is your strength. Beloved, everything, I say everything you need is wrapped up in Me. If you can think of what could be wrong, I can tell you how to make it right. Everything through Me can be made right, no matter what a doctor says, no matter what your parents, even your grandparents said. I came so you would have life, abundant life, not a miserable existence, but a good life. I desire that you are happy, that you laugh more, that you smile more, that when others look at you, they see a radiance that says I am your Abba Daddy and that you are at peace, that you are confident that I am always with you and that your name is written on the palm of My hand.
Philippians 4:8: Finally, ________, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy, meditate on these things.
Welcome to Coffee Hour with Chicklitpower and Faith-Filled Fridays with Trench Classes United! Grab whatever drink you have for your break, a journal for notes and your strand of faith and hopefully you’ll leave with a couple knots tied and your faith that much stronger.
Have you ever caught yourself focusing on what’s wrong in your life, or in someone else’s for that matter, or what’s wrong about another person and their actions, especially as they pertain to you, instead of all that is right? Why does it seem to be so much easier to focus on the wrong instead of the right?
I don’t know about you but sometimes I can really be a negative Nelly. Funny, just writing about this is taking me back to when my mom used to call me Pollyanna! There were times she said it sarcastically – that was in our time of Exodus which was when I was 12 all the way to 49 -- but I’ll never forget the time she said it while she was in the hospital and I was coming to see her every day.
I was telling her she had to get better so we could spend time together when she got out, and she smiled the sweetest smile – something I had rarely seen – and said, “You are such a Pollyanna.”
It caused me to stop what I was doing and look at her to confirm she was really being sweet…she was.
It wasn’t until later that I looked it up and it made me weep and I do mean weep. My tears turned on like a faucet full blast and humility washed me clean of all the years where I had misunderstood her. See, the definition for a Pollyanna is “an excessively cheerful or optimistic person”!
I never did get to discuss that with her because she never did make it out of the hospital, but, oh, how happy I was to be sad…for God had finally made right what was wrong all those years.
See, all those years I thought she was focusing on something negative about me which kept her from me and it wasn’t that at all.
How many times have we thought incredibly negative thoughts of someone just because of what we think they’re thinking of us?
Coffee Hour Friend, God calls us to get our focus on what is right about any of our circumstances, or about that person we’re in conflict with, and get it off of what’s wrong. He calls us to meditate on things that are true, noble and just – which may not describe the situation or the difficult person you are dealing with but there is ONE who is all of these things. He calls us to mediate on anything that is praiseworthy, on things of any virtue.
This God-breathed command spoken to us through Paul reminds us to quit picking apart and looking for all that is wrong, for when we do focus on what is right, the guarantee we have is we will be changed!
When we are focusing on what’s wrong, we rarely have eyes to realize what’s right…and what’s right usually far out-weighs what’s wrong, especially when we let go of what’s wrong and let Him make it right!
