Be Anxious for Nothing...and I Mean NOTHING!

As a former depressed person, the enemy tries to bring that spirit back but I have learned to resist him! (James 4:7) I have learned to use the weapon God gave me which is HIS word coming from MY mouth. Here are some scriptures that I speak for certain things. You have to know this—you shall have what you say. Life and death are in the power of YOUR tongue. The more you keep speaking “the devil is grabbing at me” or "he's on my back" the more he’s going to come at you. The Lord put him under your FOOT! Start speaking what God says about it, whatever “it” is. So, if you are feeling anxious about anything, look at these:
Proverbs 12:25 NKJV Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, But a good word makes it glad. When I’m feeling uneasy or anxious about something, I open my mouth and say “Lord, I thank You for my good word.” And I keep saying it over and over, well each time the anxiety tries to rise up, and before I know it I am calm again because the Lord …

Purification of a Queen Part 3: In All Your Getting

Last year, I started a blog series called Purification of a Queen. I intended to do all four parts back to back, but due to my own lack of diligence and faithfulness, it didn't happen. So, here we are, over a year later, continuing with part three. Please accept my apologies and let us move into today's post with excitement.

Esther 2:5-14 has been the backdrop for this series. Every time I read the book of Esther, I see similarities in my own life, which inspired me to write this series.  In the first part of this series, titled A Good Name is Rather to Be Chosen, I talked about the importance of having a good name. In part two, titled Come out From Among Them, I went on to discuss the critical element of separating ourselves from those who walk in darkness or who have ungodly influences on us. Today, I'll continue the series with discussing the importance of seeking, accepting and acting on godly wisdom.

In Esther 2:10 we see that Mordecai instructed Esther not to reveal h…

Be Made Whole

Today, my son broke a drinking glass. I didn't know he broke the glass until he told me. He said he cleaned up all the glass, but I know my son. So, I told him to turn on all the lights so we can see if he got all of the pieces because we wouldn't want anyone to step on glass and get cut. After we turned on all the lights, we saw several missed pieces of glass.  This time, I stepped in and made sure all the glass was cleaned up properly.

When our lives are broken or we've made a mess of things, our instinct is to clean it up. We think we got all the pieces, thus we try to put our own lives back together. Friends, the Word of God is the light we need in order to see ALL the pieces of our lives that need to be cleaned up. Some of us are in relationships hurting and "cutting" other people because of the brokenness that remains. These could be dating relationships or just friendships.  We can't pick up all the pieces ourselves because friends, we don't know w…

A Chat With...

Michelle Stimpson Author, Speaker, Educator

Those of you who’ve read anything I’ve written pretty much know I don’t mind sharing my testimony.  Today is no different!  A little over ten years ago, I was getting into the groove of  my brand new relationship with God. However, I was still reading books that were not conducive to Christian living. I felt a tugging in my spirit to stop reading those kinds of books.  So, I did. I stopped cold turkey. Being that I was an avid reader, I didn’t know what to read and was really at a loss but I made up in my mind that I was not going back.  For about eighteen months, I didn’t read anything, not one book.  On my 30th birthday, I was blessed with my first Christian novel. That one book opened the door for me to discover some truly godly, passionate and gifted authors.  Today, I am honored to interview one of my favorite authors, Mrs. Michelle Stimpson. I hope you are thoroughly blessed by our chat. Enjoy!
