I’m feeling very compelled to write this blog because I believe someone else needs this word. Fear of stepping out can be very crippling, it is very scary and also leaves us stagnant. If you are like myself, you can talk yourself out of ANYTHING! I mean meet your next steps with excuses and literally not move from your comfort zone because you are frozen with fear. In this blog I want to help someone get free from the spirit of stagnancy, fear and encourage you to move forward. Something I haven’t disclosed to anyone is, God placed a vision on my heart BUT I haven’t been obedient and it’s eating me up. I began talking myself out of it, making excuses but I know God’s plan for me is good. He knows I’m in a state of fear but I hear him calling me to move. I had to literally silence the voice of fear in my head and say, “Hush, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me – Philippians 4:13 .” In God’s word he has already assured us that we are equipped through him. You don’t need validation from man, he will provide the money to bring it to pass all because you are being obedient to him.

I encourage you to examine why you are fearful. If it is because of rejection just know God wouldn’t have placed it on your heart if he didn’t have people to receive it. He wants this “thing” to be brought to the people because it will help someone. You will bring someone in to him, falling on their face and connecting with our awesome God. If it is because you feel you’re too messed up or have done too much wrong, you’ve been forgiven. I always say there is healing in the process, there is growth in our pain! I struggled for a long time with the opinion of people because they know my past. The simple truth is when you repented GOD wiped your slate clean and doesn’t hold who you once were against you. The opinion of people means absolutely NOTHING when God already stamped his approval on it. When God is handing out blessings he doesn’t ask anyone for their opinion or what you did. He judges you off of the pureness in your heart so shake that off.

The next thing you should do is trust God enough to move when he tells you to. You may be praying and saying you have faith but not showing it. What if God has your blessing at the next step of where you are supposed to be stepping? You could literally be holding yourself back just by not being obedient. If you are not sure how to move your feet, PRAY and ask for the wisdom. I’ve been reading The book of Proverbs lately because I want more wisdom. In Proverbs you are constantly reminded of what a blessing it is to be wise. God will direct you and guide you through the vision he places on your heart. He will NEVER place it in your heart to leave you out wondering if he is there with you as you follow his vision for you.

Bare Faces Pure Hearts is something God placed in my heart in November 2013. I fought it, I didn’t believe it was from him and I was even scared to share it with people. Again, I felt like people really advanced in the bible would question me. I also felt people would have trouble receiving it from a woman so young. I had so many thoughts, so many excuses BUT I finally followed God’s direction and created a platform for it. This ministry focuses on Single Christian Women who are celibate, interested in becoming celibate and need encouragement through the word of God. I’m pouring back into women that all the standards of beauty in the world are not relevant because God has told us in his word what true beauty is. I’ve been through a storm but God delivered me and is now using me as a vessel to bring his love for us back into focus. ( Follow @barefacespurehearts on Instagram) Let’s pray!

 

Father,

Here I am, your vessel needing a touch from you. You’ve given me a vision and I ask that you release the spirit of fear from my life. I want to spread your word, follow your direction and I know your plans for me are GREAT. As I travel this journey called life, I ask that you keep your hand on me and elevate me because I am now ready. Lord thank you for choosing me in spite of my past and the opinions of others. I’m so happy you see the best in me even when I don’t feel at my best Lord. In your awesome and mighty name I pray,

Amen

Declarations for your financial situation: 

I declare and decree God is working on my financial situation.  God has heard my prayers, seen my tears and is working everything out. I refuse to succumb to stress about a situation that is already handled. I trust in The Lord and have never seen the righteous forsaken. At this very moment, at this very hour, at this very second I dry the tears from my eyes, release a shout of victory unto you oh Lord! In the power of your mighty name, I count it done, Amen.

Declarations for your love life:

I declare and decree that God has perfect timing in bringing forth my husband/wife. God knows my desire to be married and will honor this in HIS timing. I know that this season of singleness is a preparation season. I ask you Lord to come into my heart and prepare me to be a wife/husband. I declare greatness over my future marriage and have already submitted myself and future spouse to you. In Jesus name, it is done, AMEN

Declarations for protection from your enemies:

I declare and decree that God has removed me from danger. I believe God for the removal of enemies posed as friends. I believe God is cleaning out people who mean me no good, he is taking care of it! In Jesus name, I believe it, AMEN

I want to start this blog off with praise for God covering me. This weekend and really this entire week I have been feeling like a punching bag. It’s been a struggle to clear my mind BUT GOD is so merciful. God has been so good to me, he’s making crooked paths straight and constantly growing in me.

I’m very clear cut so I think when friendships end, relationships end that you need to be mature. The gossiping, the pointing your ex-friend or ex-girlfriend or boyfriend out is really a disrespect. I got an email informing me that someone connected to a past relationship had searched for me. Now I have a VERY unique name so to find me, someone has told you my name. It irritated me because I don’t speak of this person, don’t tell this persons business and definitely don’t give out this persons name. I’m not that type of person so it doesn’t serve me to speak negatively of someone from my pass. I immediately said “GOD, WHERE’S MY PROTECTION from these type of situations?” I have grown so much that God told me to hush, release that from my mind & continue living.

One thing we’ve got to realize is God is ALWAYS protecting us. He’s not going to let someone play with his children. He’s not going to allow ANYBODY that comes to steal, kill and destroy actually be successful in that area. When you look for his protection know that he’s an all seeing GOD. He knew your need for protection before it even was shown to you. Also, I can hear God telling me so what if someone is searching for you. So what if they want to know what you look like because they are insecure. So what if someone has spoken your name to try to make you look bad. That’s all a reflection of them, not you. They are not healed so they feel the need to inform people of you. They aren’t mature enough to admit their faults so they feel the need to speak ill of you. KEEP LIVING, KEEP BEING THE WOMAN OF CHRIST YOU ARE, KEEP SERVING THE GOD WHO’S DELIVERED YOU FROM THAT TERRIBLE RELATIONSHIP.  So you know what I’m doing? Resting on the fact that I’m covered, blessed, highly favored, living a life Christ is smiling on and grown enough to mind my own business. Let’s Pray!

Dear Most Gracious Father,

I want to thank you for creating me in your image, I want to thank you for delivering me from my past, I want to thank you for being who you are in my life and loving me no matter how I am. I pray for this person in my past tonight, that they grow, that they come to know you, that they move on with their life and realize it looks much better ahead than behind. God touch my heart so that I respond appropriately, that I can continue to grow in you and realize you are my protection. In your awesome and powerful name,

Amen
