“Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.”    

Isaiah 60:1 KJV

As i was preparing to type out this post, the Lord laid out the above Bible verse unto my heart.To be honest, i wasn’t sure what i was going to share, as it has been so long and i have so much to share, but i just knew i had to share something this evening(well morning, its like 1am). So i pondered on this verse for a while, and it was just perfect. Thank you Father for your guidance.

Don’t just arise, but also SHINE!!!

So for a while now, life in general has been really tough. More downs than ups. I went weeks without fellowship with God. There was a huge disconnect between God and i, and i just could not understand why. Because i genuinely yearned to get back in communication with Him, but it just wasn’t working out. I would talk to friends about it, but it was as though everyone around me was also in a downwards spiritual state. School was tough, relationships were falling apart, finances weren’t the greatest, amongst others. But the good thing was that my desire still remained.

A couple days ago, i finally gathered enough strength and had a prayer session with two of my closest friends. And i must say, it was powerful. It was as though there was a rush of wind around us as we prayed. Everything i went on there with that was weighing heavily on me, was lifted off.  “28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light. Matt 11:28-30NKJV

What am i trying to say?

You may be experiencing such a phase in your life, and i believe the Lord just used my situation to bless you. I believe and i know that my light has come. So has yours, so seize the opportunity and make that move, start that business, get that degree, plan that marriage.

This is a word in season. This verse is speaking to someone(you and i) to awake and arise from a state of darkness and mourning, and enter into a state of light and happiness. To rise to new life. To be radiant with the glory of the Lord. Just as after a dark night, the light breaks forth, so are you and i breaking forth into a new day.

Remember this:

Everything the enemy has stolen, God is going to restore:The Joy, The Peace, The Health, The Dreams.

Feel free to send me an email with your thoughts, testimonies, concerns, suggestions or if you just want me to pray with you, i am open to doing that.

  1. These things are real but through it all we also know that there is great power working in us both to do and to will so we will always come out stronger than we were before. That same spirit that rose Christ from the dead is still at work in us!!! That’s too much power to lift us up in whatever situation we find ourselves in at anytime.
    May God help and and make us more sensitive to His calls🙏

    Hope you are doing well Judy, it’s been a long while!

    1. Sounds like words of the apostle Paul to me☺️ We have too much power within us that if only we would recognize it, we will be able to overcome so much that life throws at us. May God truly make us very sensitive to His calls.
      I am blessed dear. I believe by His grace I am here and back from my oh so long hiatus. It’s been too long! I missed being here and reading your powerful messages and sharing as well. But I’m excited to be back. God bless you always!

      1. Your words are too kind!
        I’ve got something in mind and I think we should link up…
        We both might be busy at the moment but I believe that if we are too busy for God then we are too busy!
        Expect my mail soon!
        Stay blessed
